Trout (Wildlife Series)

Schnell, Judith (Editor)



Ray Bergman needs no introduction to devotees of fresh water fishing. When it was originally released in 1938, Trout presented the largest collection of illustrated fishing flies ever published. This classic work on trout fishing was written by Ray Bergman, fishing editor of Outdoor Life for over two decades. Trout is widely considered the quintessential bible for cold water fishermen between 1940 and 1960. Even now, it remains utterly relevant. Without pretense or affectation, Bergman offers permanently valuable advice on all aspects of trout fishing. To write Trout, Bergman travelled some 50,000 miles for the single purpose of learning more about fish and fishing. In addition to covering the East thoroughly, he fished in California, Oregon, Wyoming, Yellowstone Park, Colorado, in other western states and Canada. In this timeless book, Bergman covers the method and tackle needed for brown trout, rainbow trout, steelheads, brook trout, and cutthroats. There is also information on landlocked and Atlantic salmon, as well as a Montana grayling. Bergman's love of trout fishing across America comes through in every chapter. His well drawn anecdotes of fishing a wilder, less spoiled country from Penobscot Lake to the Umpqua convey what has become a national love for trout. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
