West Coast Fly Fisher

by Ocean West | 01 January 1998
PAPERBACK
This title offers readers all they need to know about fishing with flies in the Northwest. Featuring writers who have spent their lives pursuing tight lines and fighting fish, this book celebrates all aspects of this popular pastime. I have had the extreme privilege and pleasure of fishing with some of the most knowledgeable fly fisher in BC, and in turn sharing these experiences with millions of Canadians each year. The pages of this book hold more than 100 collective years of fly fishing experience, delivered by some of the finest fly fishers within their specific discipline. The West Coast Fly Fisher was designed to provide fly fishers with an invaluable source of useful information that could become a reference companion at water's edge; to motivate and enable readers to learn from the masters; and to allow readers to take their fly fishing to new levels. Brian Chan has become one of the most knowledgeable still water anglers of our time. He shares his unique understanding of a lake environment and takes a comprehensive look at lake entomology, productive zones, hatches and trip timing - critical concerns of one ever hopes to master fly fishing the lakes of the Pacific Northwest. Arthur Lingren has an intimate understanding of how to read a river and where steelhead like to hold in a river's riffles and runs. Fly fishing for the majestic steelhead is as difficult on angling challenge as it gets, and Art's written description of techniques, history, strategies, fly patterns, migration and timing, reading water and the beautiful steelhead flies he calls his Magic Dozen are second to none. When it comes to one of the most exciting and adrenaline-pumping aspects of fly fishing the West, it would have to be saltwater fly fishing the Pacific Ocean for silver bright cruising coho and chinook salmon. In his chapter, Barry Thornton shares his extensive knowledge of coho and chinook salmon in open saltwater and the beaches and estuaries of the Pacific Rim. He covers estuary and feeder salmon strategies, hunting coho and chinook, open-water anchoring and the most productive saltwater flies. Professional guide Kelly Davison shares his passion by taking readers through the seasons of the sea-run cutthroat trout in its freshwater and saltwater environments explaining the different habitats of the sea-run cutthroat, food sources, trip timing, equipment as well as the productive fly patterns to use. Harry Penner details his professional guiding techniques for fly casting to salmon on the West Coast rivers. His methods take a no-nonsense approach, utilizing specific flies, lines, gear and casting techniques and he offers and in-depth look at reading fly water for all five of the Pacific salmon species.
