Fly Patterns of Yellowstone

Fly Patterns of Yellowstone, Volume 2   A compendium of essential Yellowstone fly patterns.  Co-authored with Craig Mathews, this book is full of fishing tips, tying instructions for all the patterns, plus black/white and color photographs of all the flies.  These are the patterns we fish with, and we think you’ll find them as productive as we have.  All the flies have uses outside the Yellowstone region.  Hardback.  $24.95.  If you’ve read this far, here’s a special offer for 2017:  Order one copy, I’ll send you two.  That’s correct; two for one.  (Just enter 1 on the order form; you’ll get 2 sent to you.)  They make great gifts for any fisherman or fly tier!

Fly Patterns of Yellowstone, Volume 1   Out of print.  Copies are readily available on Amazon and sometimes on Ebay, as well as from the rare book dealers.

Fishing Yellowstone Hatches   Out of print.  Co-authored with Craig Mathews, this book is also available on Amazon and Ebay.  This volume covers all of the important hatches in the Yellowstone area (which is equivalent to most of the West as far as fly species, so this book is widely useful).  It provides detailed information about the insects, fishing strategies, and fly patterns.  Photographs of all the insects are included.  One of the most valuable fishing books that exists for fishing the Yellowstone area.

Yellowstone: Photographs of a Fly Fishing Landscape   Out of print.  As the title suggests, this is a book of angling landscape photographs that was published in 2002.  The publishing industry was falling on hard times immediately after 9/11, and as a consequence the press run of this book was limited to a couple thousand copies.  It was out of print by the following year.  If you are lucky enough to own a copy, hang on to it.  Copies are available on Amazon, though quite expensive.
