From the Inside Flap:

Over the past 25 years, Robert J. Behnke has done more to inform modern anglers about the diversity and biology of native trout than any other writer.

From species descriptions and conservation commentary to the history and lore of fisheries management, readers will find a wealth of clear and entertaining writing from the world's leading expert on trout and salmon. Each article includes new commentary by Behnke that updates and expands on his original text, tying together his more than 50 years of experience as a scientist and advocate for conservation.Illuminating Behnke's text are over thirty stunning illustrations of native trout and salmon by Joseph R. Tomelleri, several of which have never appeared before.From Arctic char and Dolly Varden of northern Alaska, brook trout and Atlantic salmon of Maine, cutthroat of the Great Basin, Apache trout of the desert Southwest, to rare Mexican trout of the Sierra Madre Occidental, readers will discover in this book a celebration of our most beautiful native gamefish.
