"...Lowland lake fishing, mountain lake fishing, a short history of the Pacific coast steelhead, the sea-run cutthroat as a sport fish, Pacific salmon characteristics and species, trolling for salmon, spinning for blackmouths and silver, mooching for salmon, boating the cohoe are covered in detail... In addition to its thorough coverage of all fishing in this area, [this book] contains two exceptional features... A complete listing for virtually every steelhead river from British Columbia through California, with data on the location, how to reach it, what the best fishing months are, and the size of the run. Both winter and summer steelhead are described in detail. [Also], colour plates which illustrate for the first time fly patterns which are original creations derived from the natural flies of the Northwest, with a history of their development, information on their manufacture, and suggestions on the use of kits to dress flies on location at stream or lake." * Attached to the front paste-down of this copy is the angling bookplate of writer and book collector, Glenn Leggett.
