James Prosek Author and illustrator of Trout In this beautiful new book, Robert Behnke has proved once again to be the primary source of information for all those who care about preserving our native trout and salmon. One cannot praise enough the great work he has done in the more than 60 years since he caught his first brookie in a small Connecticut stream and fell in love.
John Gierach Author of Death, Taxes, and Leaky Waders I can't think of a better author or illustrator for this beautiful and informative book. Dr. Behnke is arguably the country's top authority on trout and salmon and, better yet, he writes about them with thoroughness and clarity. And Joseph Tomelleri's illustrations just have to be seen to be believed. These two have done for trout and salmon what Roger Tory Peterson did for birds.
Nick Lyons Author of Full Creel A long overdue -- and remarkable -- book! This crowning achievement of our greatest trout biologist is wonderfully authoritative, clear, complete, and the illustrations are exactly right. No trout or salmon fisherman should miss this treasure.
David Allen Sibley Author and illustrator of The Sibley Guide to Birds A definitive text by Behnke and stunning, detailed portraits by Tomelleri combine to create a book that is both beautiful and authoritative. There are few works that inspire browsing and daydreaming about the natural world, and this is just such a book.
