This is a loving portrait of one of America's premier trout streams. This Southwestern river -- known equally for large trout, small flies, and huge crowds -- is described by the author, who found a more intimate river than the one described in the fly-fishing press.

With an abundance of lyricism and insight, Steven Meyers writes about the natural history and sporting opportunities found on his home river, New Mexico's San Juan River. 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.From the Back Cover:
This is a loving portrait of one of America's premier trout rivers. Meyers found the San Juan - known equally for large trout, small flies, and huge crowds - a more intimate river than the one frequently described in the fly-fishing press. San Juan River Chronicle is both a celebration and a gentle lament; it's a memory of a once-uncrowded river; it's a quiet caution that, perhaps, we may love such places to death; and it is a book about enduring friendships.
