In The Greatest Fly Fishing Around the World the leading fly-fishing photographer R. Valentine Atkinson has captured with inimitable skill all the facets of a sport whose history, art, science, and poetry continue to inspire many thousands of enthusiasts all over the globe.
The fly-fishing destinations have been chosen for the interest and variety of their fishing, and for the impact and beauty of their landscapes-from quietly gurgling streams and secretive river pools to the turquoise seas off the Florida Keys.
The eighteen writers have captured the ambience of these waters, the personalities of the people who fish them, and the appeal of the fish that swim them. Revered figures from fly fishing's literary hall of fame, such as Zane Grey and Roderick Haig-Brown, keep company with some of the best-known contemporary writers, including Tom McGuane, David Profumo, and John Gierach.
We travel to the vast wilderness of Alaska, the tweedy moors of Scotland, the languid heat of the Caribbean, the chalk streams of southern England, the rocky grandeur of South Island, New Zealand - and many more.
A celebration of the ancient art, as well as an encapsulation of every fly fisherman's dreams, this is an essential addition to any fishing library.
R. Valentine Atkinson is an internationally acclaimed photographer specializing in photos of the flyfishing lifestyle and nature worldwide. His photos are published regularly in most major fishing magazines, and his work was inducted into the Federation of Fly Fishers Fishing Hall of Fame.
