Fly Fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park: An Insider’s Guide to a Pursuit of Passion from High Country Press
With a Foreword by acclaimed angling writer Nick Lyons, this book features a lifetime of knowledge and insight gained from untold days and years of blissful casting and wading in the finest wild trout water east of the Rockies. If you are interested in the history of the high country of western North Carolina and east Tennessee, want to know more about fishing in the Smokies, or are seeking detailed information on tactics and techniques which work well in the region, this book is for you. You’ll enjoy all sorts of anecdotal tidbits, take to the stream with endearing old timers, and find answers to about anything imaginable about the Smokies and their fishing.
The samples will give you a feel for the flavor and flair of the book. They include the Table of Contents, the full text of two chapters covering streams (one in each state), a selection from the coverage of “Seasons of the Smokies,” and a stream graph of the type provided for all the Park’s major drainages. I think you’ll find the material of interest, and it’s but a hint of what awaits you.
The book is also available in hardback. Both formats include the folder map showing Park trails and designated backcountry campsites.
“If your passion is trout of the Southern highlands, this book will prove to be as indispensable as a favorite rod and wading boots.”
—Sam Venable, longtime columnist for the Knoxville News-Sentinel.
