The Greatest Fly Fishing Around the World sweeps readers along on a worldwide journey to experience the beauty and thrill of fishing for trout, salmon, tarpon, bonefish, and permit. With more than 300 stunning color photographs from the highly individualized lens of R. Valentine Atkinson, and twenty-three stories from contemporary and classic fly-fishing writers, it captures all the irresistible visual and literary facets of the sport that continues to inspire millions of enthusiasts all over the world. The fly-fishing destinations were chosen for the interest and variety of their fishing, and for the impact and beauty of their landscapes--from quietly gurgling streams and secretive river pools to the turquoise seas off the Florida Keys. The collection includes stories from:

Clive Gammon o John Gierach o Brian Clarke o Ernest Schwiebert o Leonard M. Wright, Jr. o Tom McGuane o Roderick Haig-Brown o Peter Kaminsky o J. W.Hills o Neil Patterson o Russell Chatham o Art Lee o Nick Lyons o David Street o Zane Grey o Verlyn Klinkenborg o David Profumo

Through their pens, and through Val Atkinson's lens, we travel to the vast wilderness of Alaska, the tweedy moors of Scotland, the languid heat of the Caribbean, the chalk streams of southern England, the rocky grandeur of South Island in New Zealand, and many others. A celebration of the ancient art, as well as an encapsulation of every fly-fisherman's dreams, this is a unique and essential addition to the library of every fly-fishing enthusiast.
