Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Shining from every page of this book is Behnke's love for these beautiful and complex works of evolution, his commitment to their conservation and recovery . . .
You will comprehend trout and salmon not just as lovely life forms and splendid quarry but as critical parts of complicated ecosystems. You will understand how they came about  . . and, most importantly, how we can recover them."

About Trout
25 Years of Essays and Articles by Robert J. Behnke, Ph.D. from Trout Magazine
[Scott, it’s technically 24 by pub but month, after that Xmas it will be 25. What do you think?]

Illustrations by Joseph R. Tomelleri

Preface by Charles Gauvin, President, Trout Unlimited

Foreword by [a famous angler/writer/conservationist]

[I’d like to ask former-President Jimmy Carter to write this one. I know he’s a TU member and loves to fly fish. Don’t know what he’ll say... Other short-list guys are Ted Williams, Theodore Roosevelt IV, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Gierach (he’d be great and he represents the west, where Doc is. ]

Introduction

[Doc has published 86 articles since 1983 and we’ll list the titles of all of them in the back of the book. He’s cherry picking which ones need updating and it’s about one-half we’d reproduce in total for the book plus his notes on each one. I’ll have them all typed in, but for today, why don’t I choose some highlights. Good enough? The titles get much much better in later years. Here’s 20 or more to begin.]

Recipe



Over the past 25 years, Robert J. Behnke has done more to inform modern anglers about the diversity and biology of native trout than any other writer. His influential quarterly column "About Trout" in Trout magazine began in 1983 and continues to this day, bringing up-to-date news on trout and salmon conservation to Trout Unlimited's large and active membership.
Collected here for the first time are Behnke's most informative articles. From species descriptions and conservation commentary to the history and lore of fisheries management, readers will find a wealth of clear and entertaining writing from the world's leading expert on trout and salmon. Each article includes new commentary by Behnke that updates and expands on his original text, tying together his more than 50 years of experience as a scientist and advocate for conservation.
Illuminating Behnke's text are over thirty stunning illustrations of native trout and salmon by Joseph R. Tomelleri, several of which have never appeared before.
From Arctic char and Dolly Varden of northern Alaska, brook trout and Atlantic salmon of Maine, cutthroat of the Great Basin, Apache trout of the desert Southwest, to rare Mexican trout of the Sierra Madre Occidental, readers will discover in this book a celebration of our most beautiful native gamefish.
