“Taylor’s one of the premiere fly fishing guides in New Mexico, and quite the author. Perhaps he’s even the 'Jackson Streit' of that state, though he may consider it the other way around. He is the one to talk to if you’re going to fly fish New Mexico." --Jackson Streit, Guide, outfitter, brother, and author of the No Nonsense Guide To Fly Fishing In Colorado

“He’s been fly fishing since Moby Dick was a minnow,” a fellow guide quips when mentioning Taylor Streit. This started over 40 years ago when Taylor learned to fly fish with his father in the Catskill Mountains. Now, Taylor Streit is THE authority on fly fishing in New Mexico. Mr. Streit’s ascension to this lofty position started in after his 1969 pilgrimage to New Mexico's uncrowded streams. In just a few years he became that state's number one professional fly fishing guide. The demand for Taylor’s services keeps him on New Mexico’s fly fishing waters nearly year-round! Taylor owned and operated the Taos Fly Shop for ten years. He was recently awarded the status of Legendary Guide by the Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame for his involvement in the sport. He also owned and managed a lodge in the Bahamas that specialized in guided Bonefishing. Currently he makes winter fly fishing trips to Argentina where he escorts fly fishers and explores fly fishing waters.

Taylor Streit has tied millions of flies. He’s developed many patterns known and used throughout “The Land Of Enchantment” that are essential for fly fishing success. Few flies are as endeared and effective as Taylor’s “Poundmeister.” That fly, and his other New Mexico specials, appear in this guidebook.
