A lot of Americans live far enough from a quality cold-water fishery that a day trip for trout is out of the question. But everybody lives close enough to a stream, creek, pond, or lake that's full of bluegills, bass, pike, or carp-which are ready to take the fly. Learn specific areas in each type of water that hold the desired warmwater fish. Both accomplished and beginner anglers will discover how bass and pike can be just as sporting as trout and salmon.
