Fly Fishing National Parks from East To West in the United States...A comprehensive where-to-go, how-to-get-there, do-it-yourself manual on fly fishing. The book was written, compiled and edited by Terry and Wendy Gunn and Bennett Mintz. Park chapters were researched and written by guides, fly shop owners and outfitters who best understand those waters, from Maine's Acadia Park to Katmai in Alaska.
Book is dedicated to Lefty Kreh. Each park chapter contains entry and access information, fish species, fly patterns, seasons and mile markers for rivers and lake entry along with detailed maps and photos. Accompanying each chapter is a "sidebar" of travel information including airports nearest the park, fly shops, campgrounds, hotels, restaurants, lodges, outfitters and nearby emergency medical services.
One National Park featured--Shenandoah National Park author Harry Murray wrote: "The opening of the Skyline Drive on September 15, 1934 was especially important to anglers for it made available the headwaters of the brook trout streams. Even though the Shenandoah National Park is only an hour from our nation's capital, one can still hike into these hollows and fish all day without seeing another angler. The streams in the Shenandoah National Park provide some of the finest fishing for wild brook trout that one can want."
