Book Review: “50 More Places to Fly Fish Before You Die”

August 16, 2011 By: Marshall Cutchin

Kirk Deeter reviews the follow-up to Chris Santella’s popular coffee-table book
Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die, saying that in addition to the expected coverage of exotic locations, the new book includes “some ‘lifetime’ destinations that aren’t necessarily eight time zones away. For example, he lists carp fishing in the South Platte River (recommended by Will Rice). Is the Dirty South Platte one of the 50 (now 100) greatest fishing destination rivers on the planet? No. But is the experience there worthy of including on a life list? Absolutely.”

Fifty More Places to Fly Fish Before You Die: Fly-fishing Experts Share More of the World’s Greatest Destinations is due out October 1 from Stewart, Tabori & Chang.
