About this title

Synopsis:

Western Fly-Fishing Strategies presents valuable tips and lessons with chapters ranging from trip planning, equipment, and tackle, to Western hatches, different kinds of insects, and the special fall season for Western anglers. Also included are useful drawings by Rod Walinchus, full-color fly plates, and photographs of the naturals, as well as thoughts on the future of Western fly fishing.

Review:

The wisdom in this exceptionally useful volume begins--where else?--at the beginning: "To know western trout water is to be successful on that water. Nowhere else must anglers use so many strategies on such a wide variety of water during so many weather conditions to be successful." Craig Mathews, besides authoring three books about fishing Yellowstone National Park, is a guide and fly-shop owner based in West Yellowstone, Montana, the hub of fly- fishing's Golden Triangle and perhaps the most famous trout-bumming region in the world. His resume, obviously, qualifies him to talk about fly-fishing in the American West--and if you want to catch fish left of the 100th meridian, you should listen. Mathews discusses all the great new equipment and tackle available to an angler (for a pretty penny), but the real meat on this catch is in the section on reading western waters and adapting to diverse, ever-shifting conditions. While the focus is on the author's home waters--the blue-ribbon rivers of the Northern Rockies where Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming meet--the tactics and insights pertain to the American West in general. The point throughout is that it takes study and practice to learn how to regularly outwit wily trout. After all, "Pure luck and successful angling seldom go hand in hand." --Langdon Cook, Sports & Outdoors editor
