Overview

“A whimsical dalliance into the adventure of it all: a walk with a master storyteller painting every page with photographs and prose that speak ‘fisherman.’” — Robert A. Esperti Former member, U.S. Fly Fishing Team

With exquisite photography and captivating tales from the West’s premier fishing locations, Flyfishing the Great Western Rivers beautifully chronicles the essence of casting for silver salmon, steelhead, king salmon and trout.

Renowned author and passionate fly fisherman Ralph Kylloe takes the reader to some of the wildest and most remote rivers across the western United States and Canada — from the extraordinary Tsiu River in Alaska’s Lost Coast region to the majestic Smith River in Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park in California. His warm and humorous journal entries offer play-by-play adventures that capture the tone, style, grace and wonderment of the fly-fishing experience.

Complete with a resource guide of fishing locations and gear, Flyfishing the Great Western Rivers is not only an exquisite photographic memoir — it’s the closest thing to being there.

Ralph Kylloe is a passionate fly fisherman who travels extensively with his fishing gear, laptop and camera, bringing a fresh approach to the human side of fy-fishing.

The author and photographer of fifteen books relating to rustic lifestyles, he is also the owner of the Ralph Kylloe Gallery in Lake George, New York. His design business participates in the design and furnishing of rustic homes, restaurants, lodges and commercial facilities all across North America. His other books include Cabins and Camps, Rustic Artistry, Rustic Style, The Rustic Cabin and many others. He has appeared on the Today Show and numerous other television programs. A nationally known speaker, his presentations are usually standing room only.

Introduction

I fish. I go through phases. I caught my first fish when I was about four years old. For many years I fished with a fly rod. Then I got hooked on bass fishing. For years, in the wintertime, I traveled to Florida to catch tons of huge bass in the wonderful lakes throughout the region. But all things change.

Several years ago my good friend, artist Barney Bellinger, told me to give him a thousand dollars. He said it was for new fishing gear. So I gave him the money. I didn't argue. I just gave him the money. The following morning he showed up with two new fly rods, reels, and all kinds of related gear. That was it
