Looking over the past 150 years, Art Lingren explores the origins of fly-fishing in British Columbia. He covers both the special waters where fly-fishing developed and the legendary fishermen who laid the foundation for the fly-fishers to come. Many of these fishermen were the first in all of North America to experiment with the flies and techniques of Great Britain. Lingren discusses such fabled waters as the Campbell River, the Dean, Bella Coola, and Skagit rivers, and of course the famous Thompson. A description of each water is given, including: its history, effective techniques and flies, species information, excerpts from historical references, local anglers and their experiences, and more.

For many anglers, exploring the history of fly-fishing is as important a part of their life as actually getting out on the water. This book is for those fly-fishers with a love for the history of fly-fishing in North America.
