Steelhead Country PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Steelhead Country free pdf Steelhead Country is not just a collection of random fishing stories. It is a personal and lovingly crafted account of a life spent immersed in a tradition that stretches back generations. Acclaimed flyfisherman and author Steve Raymond paints a picture of the world of steelhead trout that is "a realm of vast landscapes, of cold mountain rivers flowing down through silent, shadowed forests ..., of ragged coastlines honeycombed with hidden harbors and secret bays where bright rivers mingle with the sea." Raymond traces not just the journey of steelhead along the icy gray rivers of the Pacific Northwest but also his own development as a flyfisherman, recalling following in his father's footsteps and joining him on quiet waterways. Then, steelhead were more a myth than reality--something he only knew from stories. He began to look anywhere he could for information on how to catch this unique, elusive fish, until finally, in a moment of adrenalin-filled excitement, he caught his first steelhead. Steelhead Country tells the story of a life in fishing in the same vein as Roderick Haig-Brown's A River Never Sleeps. Through the joys and challenges of fly fishing for steelhead, Raymond describes and pays tribute to his connection with nature and a great fishing tradition.
