From the spectacular Teton Wilderness, downstream 195 miles to just below the confluence with the Henry's Fork, this book will take you on a fly-fishing journey. In his book the author shares his best fly patterns along with color photographs & dressings. Fly-fishing strategies; reading the water; hatches & timing; trout foods; & where to find your fish are all included in this comprehensive book. The Snake River has a long history among fly fishermen & in this book you will find out why.
The research for this book began several years ago, well before I considered a career in the fly-fishing industry, much less becoming a writer. My first-&-foremost thanks must go out to my grandfather, Boots Allen, father, & uncle. These three individuals helped to pioneer the fly-fishing industry in the Snake River region. Research for this book comes in large part from conversations with, & observations from, those who fly-fish the Snake River & call it their home river. The fly-fish & tie in the Snake River region is to be a part of a fraternity that has a sincere concern for the ecosystem & readily shares information about the river, its tributaries, its trout & its trout food. Growing up here, I have had the privilege to know & learn from some of the local industry greats. For eight months every year, my life revolves around guiding.
