One of the most prolific fly-fishing writers of the twentieth century, Roderick L. Haig-Brown continues his "seasons" cycle with Fisherman's Spring, a book that is as much about the deep philosophical aspects of fly fishing as it is about fly fishing itself. Readers will learn about the abundance of spring life in the streams of British Columbia while also being treated to Haig-Brown's thoughtful musings and ideas about the rewards of fly fishing streams. Chapters readers will encounter include: Spring Defined Early Cutthroat Lakes Fly Types The Secret Life Fishing and the Common Man On Wading Fishermen and Forestry Fishing and Milkmaids The Forecast Recognizing Birds Putting Fish Back A Boy and a Fish Pole And many more Discover within these pages how fly fishing can enrich life and bring joy to every fisher. Both novices and experts alike will find a wealth of knowledge in Fisherman's Spring. Originally published in 1964, Fisherman's Fall brings a unique perspective to the world of fall fishing. In the preface, Robert L. Haig-Brown ruminates on the attempts to preserve the salmon and trout in the rivers of British Columbia. What we know could save them, yet what we do contradicts that knowledge. Gaining the knowledge in this book will help fishers learn the nature of the fish and might even inspire some to contribute to their preservation. Fisherman's Fall gives fishers all the tools to become adept at fishing the rivers of British Columbia as well as firsthand knowledge of the fish of those rivers and their habits. In fabulous prose, readers will discover the unique fishing facts and techniques that accompany the fall season, differences between salmon in salt water and fresh water, the ocean years of salmon, the nature of estuaries, steelhead mysteries, and what makes an ideal stream. Besides gathering wise information, readers get to glimpse the inner thoughts of a fisherman in the chapters of Haig-Brown's own thoughts while fishing. These wise words will speak to any fisher, and they will even speak to those who have never been on a river. Combining angling advice and inner reflection, this book is a must-have for fishermen and fisherwomen of all ages. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen.
