Grab your fly rod; grab your backpack; & in some cases grab your sides with laughter, as this angling author transports you to some of the finest wilderness locations in North America. 6x9 inches, 120 pgs.
Each of the seven wilderness trips by the author's maps. From a short jaunt along Vermont s Long Trail to Labrador s most remote mountain range, the author has followed a passion for wilderness trout. Chasing golden trout, high in Montana s Beartooths or Wyoming's Wind River Range, backpacking for cutthroats in the vast Bob Marshall Wilderness or the most remote corner of Yellowstone Park, Shea shares his stories and experiences, providing an inspiration for your own trip or armchair fishing adventure. Long Trail Trout's storylines often drift away from the fishing itself, and focus on the characters and odd situations that can populate a forty-year career of backcountry trout fishing. An arrest, a honeymoon gone awry, bear fears, and a life-threatening hurricane, are among the themes that take their turn in a personal anthology that is a fun and easy read.
