Product description

Synopsis

For both armchair travelers and avid outdoorsmen and women, Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die maps out the top fly-fishing destinations around the world. Through in-depth interviews with fifty fly-fishing gurus, including Dan Callaghan (noted fly-fishing photographer), John Randolph (editor-in-chief of Fly Fisherman magazine), Mike Fitzgerald (president of Frontiers, the world's leading fly-fishing travel company), and Joan Wulff (a women's fly-fishing pioneer), author Chris Santella goes beyond standard fishing guides to convey the very essence of each location. Readers can vicariously cast mouse pattners to fifty-pound taimen in the wilds of Mongolia, wrangle with wily permit off the Florida Keys, and match the hatch on Montana's Armstrong's Spring Creek. From Cuba to Kamchatka, each essay includes a cultural and natural history of the featured spot, colorful anecdotes based on the author's and authorities' experiences, and, finally, some "if you go" travel and tackle information so that the more adventurous can start planning their next fishing excursion. With 40 breathtakingly beautiful photographs of the spots, many by celebrated fly-fishing photographer R.

Valentine Atkinson, this book is a lovely gift for any fisherman.

About the Author

Chris Santella is a marketing consultant and freelance writer (The New York Times, The New Yorker, Travel & Leisure, Fish & Fly, Fly Rod & Reel, etc.), but his true passion is fly-fishing. He plies his local rivers in Portland, Oregon, on a weekly basis and has fished throughout the United States, his native England, British Columbia, and Alaska. He lives in Portland with his wife and daughter.
