For generations, steelhead have captured and captivated the hearts, minds, and souls of fly anglers
in the Pacific Northwest. These remarkable sea-going salmonids, reign as one of North America's
greatest gamefish, akin to the Atlantic salmon of eastern Canada or the Florida-strain largemouth
bass of the South.
With decades of steelhead experience under his belt, Shewey takes both the novice and experienced
angler deep into steelhead territory. In his clear and entertaining style, Shewey covers everything the
prospective steelhead hunter will want to know.
Beginning with biology, he explains the differences between steelhead and the more common Pacific
salmon, and goes on to explain the differences between summer and winter steelhead, how they
differ from rainbow trout, and why they're relatively uncommon. Following chapters provide
information about rods, reels, lines; flies; casting techniques; reading steelhead water; wading gear;
and the ethics and etiquette of the sport.
Taking steelhead on a fly represents one of the ultimate expressions of the artistic nature of fly
fishing, and this is the ultimate guide.
