National Parks Fly Fishing Book Celebrates 100th NPS Anniversary

In honor and tribute to the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, Stonefly Press has produced a how-to-do-it manual on fly-fishing every park from Maine to Alaska, announced publisher Robert Clouse.

The book – “25 Best National Parks to Fly Fish” – was researched, written, and edited by Terry and Wendy Gunn and Bennett Mintz.  Individual park chapters were researched and written by guides, fly shop owners and outfitters who provide services to each of the parks together with nearby outside-the-park waters.

The book’s foreword was written by Jonathan B. Jarvis, Director of the National Park Service.  “25 Best National Parks to Fly Fish” is dedicated to Lefty Kreh with the notation,  “Lefty Kreh has touched more lives and converted more people to fly fishing than anyone ever has or ever likely will.”

Each park chapter contains driving directions, entry and access information, fish species, and recommended tackle, fly patterns and mile markers for river and lake entry along with detailed maps and photos.  Accompanying each chapter is a “sidebar” of travel information including highways, airports nearest the park, fly shops, campgrounds, hotels, restaurants, lodges, outfitters, must-see attractions and nearby emergency medical services.

Each park consists of a single chapter with the exception of Yellowstone.  Because of its size and number of fly-fishable waters extending beyond the park boundaries, Yellowstone Park is divided into four chapters primarily in Wyoming, but extending into Montana and Idaho.

The book is priced at $32.95.
