The Gift of Print

  • By: Fly Rod and Reel

For more than 30 years, Fly Rod & Reel Magazine has presented readers with a cornucopia of the finest writing in fly-fishing: about equipment; about technique; about the personalities and pioneers who make this great sport what it is; and, of course, about fly-tying. The best fly-tying pieces from the three decades of Fly Rod & Reel’s history (so far). There’s something here for everyone. Authors such as Darrel Martin, A. K. Best, Fishy Fullum, Mike Martinek, D. L. Doddard and many, many more are resprented in this first-of-its-kind collection. You'll find personality profiles, solid fishing advice and revealing topics, plus clear and colorful graphics and illustrations—as well as the step-by-step tying instructions we all look for. The book even has a special binding so it stays open on your tying table!


 Love Story of the Trout—the title comes from a Dave Hughes story included in the collection—offers poignant, compelling and flat-out fun stories going back to 1980s, when FR&R began publishing fiction. Several of the stories in this unique collection were award-winners in the Robert Traver Fly-Fishing Writing Award, co-sponsored by Fly Rod & Reel and the John D. Voelker Foundation and the major national writing award in our sport. Also, the Introduction is an insightful essay on the art of fiction by John Gierach!
