Steelhead legend Lani Waller covers the essential elements of fishing for trophy steelhead with prose as beautiful and surprising as the fish themselves. The blend of how-to and why-to not only captures the essence of these elusive fish but also uncovers what it takes to consistently bring them to hand. Waller shares his techniques for swinging wets and waking dry flies, including proper approach, presentation, and his favorite fly patterns, both classic and contemporary. Chapters on hunting trophies, equipment, casting, and conservation provide readers with a life's worth of wisdom learned from his time on the water.
Waller brings along some of his friends to help contribute to the book. Steelhead expert Bob Hooton's chapter on steelhead biology is a concise overview of the steelhead's life cycle, biology, and behavior; artist Dave Hall illustrates Waller's swinging techniques; and photographer Ken Morrish's stunning images capture the magic of the fish and the rivers they ascend ech year. This all-star cast of steelhead fanatics has created a classic book that honors the fish as well as those who chase them, whether in the Pacific Northwest of United States, the wilderness streams of British Columbia, or the hundreds of tributaries that run into the Great Lakes.
