Item # 197931
$69.95


"Colorado Trout Flies" by Todd Hosman. Introduction by Ed Engle. The East Slope of the Colorado Rocky Mountains is home to an extraordinary concentration of accomplished fly tyers, perhaps more than anywhere in the world. Colorado Trout Flies profiles 34 of them, including professional tyers, fly-fishing guides and writers. The book also details 68 great fly patterns (with color photos and recipes) as crafted by the featured tyers. Based on the author's extensive interviews and research, Colorado Trout Flies brings the reader into the fly tyer's world of tradition and innovation; of imitation and imagination. For fly anglers and tyers, Colorado Trout Flies presents a unique and invaluable reference. Everyone can savor the book's insights into a remarkable group of people and the beautifully functional objects they create. Each of the book's 34 tyers presents two favorite patterns (typically a dry fly and non-dry fly). In all, the book documents 68 fly designs, with accurate recipes. More than 80 color photographs of trout flies, plus more than 100 B&W photos, including an original portrait of each tyer. A portion of the proceeds from this book's sales will be donated to The Nature Conservancy and Colorado Trout Unlimited. Hardcover, 332-pages, indexed, 10.25" x 7.25".

My Life Was This Big
Item # 227141
$24.95


My Life Was This Big & Other True Fishing Tales by Lefty Kreh with Chris Millard: Lefty Kreh takes his readers on an angling journey through the last half-century, when water was big and fishermen were bigger (maybe). But, despite all that’s changed since the fifties, when Lefty began his career as a professional fly fisherman and writer, fishing is still just fishing. In My Life Was This Big, he relates tales of fishing expeditions with Fidel Castro and Ernest Hemingway, as well as solo battles with some of the scrappiest, most elusive fish in the world. Lefty also takes the reader through the development of his world-famous "Deceiver" fly style, and takes on the issue of conservation through catch-and-release.

This is a glimpse into the heart and soul of Lefty Kreh- a man who has written for nearly every outdoor magazine in the U.S.; a man who has fished some of the remotest parts of the globe; and a man whose books and articles have taught thousands of people his techniques for hooking and landing more fish. For fans both young and old, these are Lefty’s stories.
