Let My People Go Fishing

This new book by Yvon Chouinard, Craig Mathews, and Mauro Mazzo, reveals the best way to catch trout: simply, with a rod and a fly and not much else. It teaches how to discover where the fish are and what they are feeding on, then demonstrates techniques to present a fly, make it look life-like, and hook the fish.

"Simple Fly Fishing: Techniques for Tenkara and Rod & Reel" will be available from Patagonia Books in spring 14.


Fly Fishing the Inland Oceans

After three years of on-water "research" and hundreds of hours banging away on the computer, Jerry Darkes's first book, Fly Fishing the Inland Oceans is on the market. This is the first-ever, comprehensive look at fly fishing IN the Great Lakes.  All five Great Lakes are reviewed along with Lake St. Clair and various connecting waters.  Both warmwater and cloldwater fish species are covered with the techniques and equipment needed to catch them.  There are also over 160 fly patterns presented with recipes for Great Lakes use.



The book is held in such high regard by anglers that is still being published today

An incredibly rare 170-year-old book credited with transforming fishing from a gentleman’s hobby into a nationwide phenomenon has emerged for sale.

The 48-page folio was published by tackle dealer William Blacker in 1842 and went on to become one of the most definitive guides to fly fishing.
