This is a revised and updated edition of Trout Streams of Alberta, with significant information from Blue Ribbon Bow incorporated into it. Included here are examinations of each watershed, focusing on the best opportunities that each provides—from wilderness cutthroat and grayling streams, to intimate brown-trout creeks, to internationally acclaimed rainbow rivers. Jim McLennan draws on nearly 50 years of fly-fishing experience to make sound recommendations on tackle, technique and fly patterns. The presentation is enhanced by detailed maps, colour and black and white illustrations, hatch charts and fly patterns, profiles of Alberta trout species, and explanations of how trout and trout streams operate. Written in an engaging, personal style, this is a book anglers will refer to frequently for vital information and will return to just as often for pleasure.
“Whether you’ve never fished Alberta’s trout streams or have spent years on its waters, Jim McLennan’s Trout Streams of Alberta is the perfect place to start planning and dreaming about your next trip. But this book is more than a valuable “where to go” guide. You will also learn about the fish, the bugs, the tackle, and the flies you’ll need to be successful. Great read – great info.” Rick Hafele, author/entomologist, The Complete Book of Western Hatches
“In this edition of Trout Streams of Alberta, Jim McLennan again reveals that he is one of the most knowledgeable moving water fly anglers on the eastern side of the Rockies. The book is a must-read for anyone who fly fishes, or plans to fly fish, the word-class streams of Alberta.” Derek Bird, Editor, Fly Fusion Magazine
