Great Gift Idea for the Anglers on your Christmas List:
Angler’s Guide to Rocky Mountain National Park provides all the information a visiting angler can use in a compact, waterproof field manual that highlights the fishing opportunities in most of the lakes and streams on the east side of the national park. This book tells where to go, specific areas to target, what to take with you, what flies are consistent producers, and how to present them, all in an easy concise format. It is like having a guide in your pocket at an affordable price.
“The narrative quickly displays the authors’ experience and knowledge of the Park, its waters, and the fish residing there. Photos throughout, especially of the fish, and locations are first rate. Fly recommendations are clear and for easily obtained patterns widely available locally, making it easy for the non-local to go afield well equipped,”- Austin Condon, past president of the Alpine Anglers Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
The layout of this book features each lake with notations on the distance of the hike, a picture of the lake, a topographic map highlighted with the best areas to cast from, the type of trout present, and a “tips from your guide” section with specific advice to help anyone catch trout. There are pages pertaining to the “fly and bubble” technique for spin fishing, basic fly fishing techniques, basic hiking equipment and a section on the greenback cutthroat trout recovery.
