“The mountains–any mountains–can make you pay for your fishing with time, shoe leather, exertion, and even disappointment. But they usually give back more than they take in terms of solitude and a sense of adventure that you just won’t find on more civilized waters.”
* Tactics for fishing high country lakes, the conflicting currents of high mountain streams, and the ever-changing waters of beaver ponds
* Cutthroats, brook trout, goldens, rainbows, grayling
* The best weather and seasons to fish and the tackle and flies to take into the high country
Fly-fishing in scenic and remote mountain waters is a special kind of fishing, explored in depth by veteran fly fisher John Gierach. Along with Fly Fishing Small Streams (0-8117-2290-2), this guide, Gierach’s first book now in print with Stackpole Books, explains how to find the best waters and how to fish them to the best advantage.
