almost forty years, Lefty has been fishing all over the States. He's
had his share of river washouts, sun-bright salmon days, cloudy
bonefish skies, fishless days, and busted trips. Fly fishers have been
begging him to pass along some of his best finds, so Lefty Kreh has
written a wide-ranging travel book to do just that.
|Making his case that
the U.S. contains simply the best and most diverse fishing in the
world, Lefty shares his favorite trout, smallmouth bass, and shad spots
in the Northeast and Middle Atlantic; largemouth bass holes in the
South; freshwater fish dens of all kinds in the Midwest and West; and
Pacific salmon and steelhead runs in the Northwest. And he also covers
the incredible variety of fishing holes to be found in the completely
different fisheries of Alaska and Florida.
He didn't just go on memory, either. Each write-up has been checked out
by a local fly-fishing shop or professional outfitter, who have added
their own comments.
From all these thousands of rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, lagoons, and
oceans, Lefty has chosen just forty waters. Sure, it was an impossible
task, but somebody had to do it-and who better than Lefty Kreh?
