Overview

British Columbia traces its fly-fishing roots back hundreds of years; some of the best-known, most-respected writers, fly-fishers, and fly-tiers hail from this gorgeous region. Looking over the past 150 years, Art Lingren explores the origins of fly-fishing in British Columbia. He covers the special waters where fly-fishing developed and the legendary fishermen who laid the foundation for the fly-fishers to come. Many of these fishermen were the first in all of North America to experiment with the flies and techniques of Great Britain.

Lingren also discusses the region's many fabled waters -- the Thompson, Tlell, Bella Coola, Dean, the Skeena and its famous tributaries, and many, many more -- including their history, effective techniques and flies, species information, excerpts from historical references, local anglers and their experiences, and more. Fly patterns and techniques are given for many fish species, including: rainbow trout, cutthroat, steelhead, and coho. Whether you are a fly-fishing history buff or just want to learn more about the fabulous sport British Columbia has to offer, Famous British Columbia Fly-Fishing Waters is an invaluable addition to your fly-fishing library.
