We are excited about these two new fly fishing books that were released at about the same time. They have been a long time coming as books usually are. But they will both be of great interest to you, an angler in the Southeast United States or one who visits here to fly fish. Both are available at our shop now and online right here.
Fly Fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park: An Insiders Guide to A Pursuit of Passion.
Jim Casada grew up in Bryson City, North Carolina within walking distance of Great Smoky Mountains National Park. He has spent over a half century roaming around these mountains with a fly rod in his hand. Jim has a deep interest in the Park’s human history and that is one of the many things that make this book unique. As Nick Lyons says “It is really several books”.
Separate chapters cover every major watershed in the Park, the rich fabric of the region’s past is unveiled in a fashion only possible when the author is a trained historian, and in these pages you meet dozens of endearing characters and enduring traditions. For those seeking helpful “where to go” and “how to catch trout in the Park,” this work, which far transcends any existing boon on the subject will become an angling bible.
It includes chapters on each of the year’s four seasons and what they bring to the Smokies angler, extensive coverage of equipment, an expert’s thoughts on effective tactics and techniques, treatment of safety considerations, a remarkably detailed bibliography, seven appendices covering everything from seasonal climate conditions to graphs of stream slopes and stream waypoints of note, and even a peek into what the future like holds for the park.
The Park is a paradise for wild trout, and its streams offer the finest fishing for them, in hundreds of miles of water, anywhere east of the Rockies. This book, truly an “insiders guide,” is as informative as it is interesting, and the author enlivens it even more by bringing a wealth of personal experience to its pages. This book contains 440 pages and is available in hardcover for $37.50 or softcover for $24.95. Call us at 877-448-3474 to order yours. We will pay for ground shipping.
