9780871089694: San Juan River Chronicle: Personal Remembrances of One of America's Premier Trout Streams (The Pruett Series)

With an abundance of lyricism and insight, Steven Meyers writes about the natural history and sporting opportunities found on his home river, the San Juan of New Mexico. Rising out of southern Colorado's majestic San Juan Mountains and flowing through the arid hardscrabble of the Southwest, the San Juan has garnered a devoted following of fly fishers. This classic tailwater fishery is renowned around the world for easy access and trophy-sized trout. But with fame comes a cost, and the river is now host to a carnival of crowds, poachers, and crass trophy seekers. Meyers mourns the loss of solitude while celebrating his own ways of seeking solace on a river known only superficially by most who fish its hallowed pools and riffles.

Review:

“The Southwest’s best trout-fishing writer  . . . weighs in with another collection of fine essays. I’ll read Steve Meyers as long as he writes.”
—Stephen J. Bodio (from a review in Fly Rod & Reel)

“Meyers writes well and movingly in this book, as he did in a previous one, Notes from the San Juans, a collection of essays about people, fishing and places in southwestern Colorado . . . . If fame is what saves great trout rivers, then Meyers needn’t worry about the ultimate fate of the San Juan River—particularly when it has advocates like the author of San Juan River Chronicle.” —Bob Saile (from a review in the Denver Post)

“Rarely has one man’s relationship to a great home river been chronicled with such loving, complex and enduring insights.” (from a review in the March-April 1995 issue of Fly Fishing magazine)
