Ken Hanley and some very talented contributors like Jeff Solis, Dave Stanley, Katie Howe, and others have fly fished nearly every top water in California. This guide provides readers with all they need to discover the best places to fly fish in the Golden State—saltwater, bass, stealhead, and high mountains.
Ken Hanley is certainly the most qualified fly fishermen to pen a NoNonsense fly fishing guide to the state of California. His fly fishing passion has accompanied him throughout his many adventures hiking the peaks in Tibet and the Himalayas and exploring the wilderness of Europe, Mexico, New Zealand, and Asia, but his Northern California home waters are what he knows best.
