In this installment, he focuses again on the rivers of his native British Columbia such as the Campbell, the Columbia, and the Nimpkish. Among his vast wealth of knowledge concerning fly fishing, readers are also exposed to his wise reflections. His discussions of the past fishermen of these rivers, including Native Americans and pioneers, and his hope that the future of these rivers will remain abundant and full of life, will touch the hearts of fishers and nonfishers alike.

The Great Destroyers
The Beaches

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

About the Author:

Roderick L. Haig-Brown (1908 1976) was a conservationist and well-known Canadian writer. He was born in England and found his way to British Columbia as a youth. He spent much of his life fishing rivers around the world and writing about his experiences, and in 1953 he received an honorary doctor of laws (LLD) from the University of British Columbia. He is also the author of Fisherman’s Spring, Fisherman’s Fall, and Fisherman’s Winter. He is now deceased.

Review:

"Not since Walton has there been a writer who can describe the joys of fishing as does Haig-Brown." —Boston Post
