Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Outdoor writer Heiner aims to provide a guidebook for non-Alaskans who yearn to fish amidst the unspoiled splendor of the Great Land. He offers practical advice on what types of gear and flies to pack, traveling by bush planes to remote lodges, and the unpredictability of the weather. He also advises anglers on how to deal with bears and includes several accounts supporting the wisdom of leaving them alone. The largest section discusses specific areas and waterways, and the final part describes the numerous fishprimarily rainbow trout and several salmon speciesand recommends strategies and techniques for catching and releasing them. Anecdotes and caveats based on the author's experiences add a personal touch. Recommended for large fishing collections.Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.
