Synopsis

For both armchair travelers and avid outdoorsmen and women, Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die maps out the top fly-fishing destinations around the world. Through in-depth interviews with fifty fly-fishing gurus, including Dan Callaghan (noted fly-fishing photographer), John Randolph (editor-in-chief of Fly Fisherman magazine), Mike Fitzgerald (president of Frontiers, the world's leading fly-fishing travel company), and Joan Wulff (a women's fly-fishing pioneer), author Chris Santella goes beyond standard fishing guides to convey the very essence of each location. Readers can vicariously cast mouse pattners to fifty-pound taimen in the wilds of Mongolia, wrangle with wily permit off the Florida Keys, and match the hatch on Montana's Armstrong's Spring Creek. From Cuba to Kamchatka, each essay includes a cultural and natural history of the featured spot, colorful anecdotes based on the author's and authorities' experiences, and, finally, some "if you go" travel and tackle information so that the more adventurous can start planning their next fishing excursion. With 40 breathtakingly beautiful photographs of the spots, many by celebrated fly-fishing photographer R.

Valentine Atkinson, this book is a lovely gift for any fisherman.

He lives in Portland with his wife and daughter.

HASH(0x9db00f60) von 5 Sternen Beatiful places 9. März 2006
Von Gustavo Pereyra - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
nice book, but i would like to see more pictures of the different species!! also some maps to locate some places would be great...I live in argentina and the 3 places chosen are great, although you must be a millionaire to fish rio grande!! Fortunately we still have a lot of places here to fish for free.

I would rather see a book where they tell where to fish and spent little money (as an example the book tells you that i f you want to fish rio traful, the only way to do it is going to arroyo verde lodge and thats no true!! you can do it for free if you want..there are accesses by foot or you can reach it by the lake, an there are other private places much more cheaper, but why they dont describe that??). Do not tell me where i can go spending $ 5000 a week because its obvious i could go everywhere with that money!!!!

HASH(0x9daff9c0) von 5 Sternen A must for the Rich Fishing Addict 29. August 2005
Von G. Collector - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
If you have unlimited funds and time this book provides the backbone for a lifetime of fishing trips to exotic locales. Initially I bought the book as a gift for a flyfishing addict but it was such a great read that I ended up buying a second book for myself. The photography is outstanding and so far I've visited 2 of the places in the book and they both ranked as the top trips I'veever taken. 2 down and 48 more to go!!!

HASH(0x9daff900) von 5 Sternen Where's the Beef, Er Trout? 25. November 2006
Von Andrew Schonbek - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This is a beautiful book, one that is smartly designed and packaged, pleasant to leaf through and to handle, but somewhat lacking in substance.

Here's an example of the kind of lapse that would have been caught had the book been written for hard core fisherpeople. We read, "The South Island of New Zealand is awash with beauty and teeming with trout". And then a few sentences later, "The South Island trouting experience is certainly one of quality rather than quantity. A majority of the rivers simply don't support large numbers of fish. Some of the most fishy-looking water you can imagine may not contain a single fish".

So is the South Island "teeming with trout" or is it not?

Ultimately it doesn't really matter. This isn't a book about information - it's a wonderful collection of vicarious fishing trips. I'd never flicked a fly rod when I got it, yet I was engrossed, transported, and in the end captivated.

The settings range from intimate, "Brown Trout on Letort Spring Run", to grand, "Steelhead on the Dean River". Along the way we encounter tarpon, bonefish, snook, pike, redfish, all manner of salmon and trout, and even something known as a giant trevally that lurks in the waters off Christmas Island.

And the photographs are stunning. I only wish there were one for every destination.

Recommended to wile away a winter's afternoon while waiting for the ice to break.

HASH(0x9db034bc) von 5 Sternen So many places, so little time... 21. Oktober 2005
Von Mika Vainio - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I was expecting to read location related fishing stories written by experienced anglers and was a little bit dissapointed to realize the interview based approach. There seems to be no real feelings in these short texts. Additionally, being a big fan of Mr. Atkinson's art, the size of the book really puts some strict constraints to his photos. Unfortunately.

Having said the above, I have to admit, that I don't regret the purchase of the book. I think that every actively travelling fly fisherman should have it. There is a lot of very valuable information in it, although, quite strongly biased in favor of the USA.

HASH(0x9db07d38) von 5 Sternen Dream a Little... 26. November 2011
Von Jack Donachy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
To call "Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before you Die" a "must" is going too far--it's a decent enough bed stand companion, a chapter or two from which is bound to induce pleasant dreams. But to pan it on the grounds that the destinations are only the dominions of millionaires is unfair as well. Nineteen of the 50 places mentioned (nearly 40% of the book's contents) lie within the contiguous United States and are affordable to anyone with a job and the gumption to go. Another 11 destinations are in North America--Mexico, Canada, Caribbean Islands, Canada and Alaska--making them doable for most American anglers. That leaves less than half the book devoted to destinations that range from "out there" (England, Spain, etc.) to really out there (Australia, New Zealand) to really, really out there (Mongolia, remote parts of Chili and Argentina, distant islands, etc.). Overall, the destinations represent a good mix of the kinds of places dedicated fly anglers would want to explore.

This book could be improved by the addition of more angling-specific content, more photographs (some destinations have no photographs at all), and maps. If it had those things, then it would be a "must" for serious anglers. As it stands, this book will put a smile on the face of virtually any fly fisherman who receives it. What serious angler wouldn't want to fish the remote waters of Mongolia, Russia or Chili--or at least dream about such a trip? And meanwhile, the book provides enough quality locations closer to home in locales from California to Pennsylvania that even a fly fisherman on a modest budget can begin a lifetime checklist.
