Literature and fly fishing have gone hand in hand for me. This was my Cortland 4 piece. While I no longer live in the Pacific NW, and sold that fly rod quite a few years ago, this book will always set the standard when I sit down to read a new fly fishing book.

I think I'd like to go stealhead fishing someday.
