The Field and Stream Treasury of Trout Fishing

Publisher: Ballantine Books
The definitive collection of trout fishing adventure and advice, lore and legend
 
Spanning almost a century of American angling, here is a book that you will read and reread, whatever your mood, for adventure, for humor, for the sheer joy of it. This veritable who’s who of trout fishing, drawn from the pages of Field & Stream, describes the joy and pain, the camaraderie and solitude, the strategy, the patience, and the triumph of one of the great sporting challenges of the Great Outdoors.
 
Emlyn Gill on smuggling the dry fly technique from England; Zane Grey on skill, luck, and the Rogue River’s fresh-run steelhead; G. M. L. LaBranche on the still-deadly “curved” cast technique; Nick Lyons on catching his first trout—and telling his first lie; Peter Kaminsky on finding brook-trout paradise in Labrador; and more than forty of fishing’s greatest men, moments, and memories.
 
The best of Field & Stream. The best the sport has to offer. A book for all those days you’d rather be fishing.
