Maine offers some of the most diverse angling opportunities in the nation. Depending on the season, or your fishing preference, you can canoe a remote pond in search of native brook trout, cast dries in solitude for rising trout on a large freestone river, troll in a lake for salmon, or search for stripers along some of the most beautiful and rugged coastline in America. Because of this diverse fishing, it is no surprise that Maine also has a rich fly tying tradition. In this book, Maine guide, fly designer, and former fly shop owner Bob Mallard shares with readers 50 essential flies from guides and other experts around the region.
