Review: The Henry's Fork of the Snake River in Idaho needs no introduction, and neither do the notoriously picky and sizeable trout lurking beneath its placid surface. But if you want to catch these fish, you might want to check out this edition of the River Journal series. The book's large, color format, sumptuous photography, and lively, descriptive text bring the river and its angling possibilities to life. Like other volumes in this series from Frank Amato Publications, the river's history, wildlife, hydraulics, and fishing conditions are described in detail for the angler's benefit.
