Art Dolloso’s new Where the Trout Sing: And Other San Francisco Stories is a compelling collection of vignettes from life of “Left Coast” fly fishing. It’s filled with local flavor, but it touches subjects–salmon conservation, Native American and Italian American fishing heritage, rod designers, and even a fictional lynching over feather theft–that have sport-wide appeal.
David Klausmeyer’s 101 Favorite Dry Flies: History, Tying Tips, and Fishing Strategies is a thorough guide for fundamental tying skills as well as the newest innovative methods. With detailed pattern instructions and photos are given as well as historical notes on the fly when applicable, Klausmeyer teaches readers to master the classics as well as the newest in commercial offerings. Skyhorse Publishing; 1 edition (September 3, 2013).
Steven J. Meyers’ Notes from the San Juans: Thoughts about Fly Fishing and Home is the timeless story of human journey. Reaching farther than the jagged mountain peaks, wild trout, and small streams of the San Juans, every reader will identify with the author’s search for a place to call home: “very much a story of human values and courage and hard-won joy.” WestWinds Press; 1 edition (August 27, 2013)
