Amazon.com has a bunch, but the one that has been the most informative to me is;

The Yellowstone Fly-Fishing Guide, by Craig Mathews.

Make sure to get a map too.

Good luck,

i second the recommendation for the matthews book on fishing yellowstone-even better is his award winning DVD-his shop,blue ribbon flies is in West Yellowstone---turn left at Madison Junction--go about 14 miles and you are there--it is worth the trip--you'll meet the whole bunch--all flies are hand tied by Craig and friends in wintertime---it is a really neat place--very fisherman'ny.West Yellowstone is a clean beautiful little town---If you are hungry when you get there--try the Timberline Cafe

Trevor, I have the Craig Matthews book. If you want to borrow it you're welcome to...

ok, that answers that question, I'll get the matthews book and make sure and use a little z-lon on all my flies. I was actually leaning towards his book anyway. I really like their site. I am hoping to make a trip to his shop as well while I'm out there.

pa-thanks for the offer, I'll probably just buy it. if there's one thing I love as much as fly fishing, it's books. I've already got me a small library going on over here.
