About this Item

208 pp. Bill was one of the most prolific anglers and unique individuals to ever cast a fly line in California's North Coast rivers. Now, in a beautiful tribute to this amazing individual, is a collection of fascinating tales as told by 30 of his friends - those who had the unforgettable experience of fishing with him. Arguably one of the greatest anglers that ever lived, Bill was a legend long before he passed away in 1995, and anglers who knew Bill still talk about him today as if he were just around the next bend. this hard-cover book spans the forty years that Bill fished - 1955 to 1995. These were the "heyday" years of steelhead and salmon fishing on the West Coast, and Bill's passing may well have marked the end of that era. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

About this title

Synopsis:

This collection of chapters will let the reader understand how other anglers saw Bill - and mostly admired him. Some of Bill's behavior may seem rude or mean, but there were many Bill Schaadts. The one most visible, was that of a totally consumed person who would let nothing come between him and his daily passion. Another, more elusive, was a very warm and sensitive person who greatly valued his friendships. And as abrupt as Bill could be, he did not like to have enemies - particularly mean ones - who might do him harm later. He could fret about a verbal skirmish for days, and would try to mend fences later if possible. You will also read that many of his lasting friendships began on the wrong foot - before he knew you, you were merely part of the "competition." Dedicating this one book entirely to Bill Schaadt represents an attempt to gather much of his legendary lore for the benefit of those who want to know more about this mystical and elusive character.
