Overview

The magic and majesty of America’s greatest western fly-fishing rivers. Flywater brings us to the iconic creeks, springs, freestone rivers, and tailwaters that make the American West the world’s premier destination for fly fishing. Grant McClintock’s first book struck a chord with fishermen, and fifteen years later he takes the reader back to these fabulous places—from the storied Henry’s Fork to the Yellowstone to the Thompson River in British Columbia. With extraordinary new photography and wisdom, McClintock revisits these home waters and discovers countless others as well. Flywater is a gallery of moments and places. From Idaho and Montana to Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, McClintock’s rich photography of trout and steelhead waters surrounded by beautiful Western landscapes creates a compelling journey that the reader, whether fisherman or non-fisherman, will thoroughly enjoy. For the serious fly fisherman, this is an album of shared experiences. For the uninitiated, it is an artfully crafted guidebook to an exotic new world that really does exist on the streams and rivers of the American West.

"There are books and there are books and this is a feast for the eyes, informative, intriguing, invaluable. It belongs in a place of prominence on your coffee table. Flywater by Grant McClintock ($45.00, 224 over-sized pages) is a true page turner with more than 200 photographs and moving, tender, serene scenes from Henry’s Fork to Yellowstone to the Thompson River in British Columbia. An album and a keepsake, Flywater is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED." ~Frommer Luxury Travel

"A perfect coffee-table book...The photos are wonderful, the places all beautiful."

"Flywater contains voluptuous shots of sport's top water bodies in the West and has helped me make it through several dreary winters in the Pacific Northwest. The photography and layout is top-notch and you soon get the feeling that you would've given ANYTHING to have been one of the folks involved with putting this package together. Just be sure to wear a bib when looking inside so you don't make indelible drool marks on the pages!”
