For generations, steelhead have captured and captivated the hearts, minds, and souls of fly anglers in the Pacific Northwest. These remarkable sea-going salmonids, reign as one of North America's greatest gamefish, akin to the Atlantic salmon of eastern Canada or the Florida-strain largemouth bass of the South.
With decades of steelhead experience under his belt, Shewey takes both the novice and experienced angler deep into steelhead territory. In his clear and entertaining style, Shewey covers everything the prospective steelhead hunter will want to know.
Beginning with biology, he explains the differences between steelhead and the more common Pacific salmon, and goes on to explain the differences between summer and winter steelhead, how they differ from rainbow trout, and why they're relatively uncommon. Following chapters provide information about rods, reels, lines; flies; casting techniques; reading steelhead water; wading gear; and the ethics and etiquette of the sport.
Taking steelhead on a fly represents one of the ultimate expressions of the artistic nature of fly fishing, and this is the ultimate guide.
