Until this becomes reality, please consider making a contribution to your favorite consevation organizations. Here were Mike's favorites.

Michael Fong

the North California Council Federation of Fly Fishers.

From Frank Amato Books: The Inside Angler was a small-run magazine with a big cult following. From over 200 destinations he'd covered, Michael Fong narrowed down the list to pick the 10 best western fly-fishing destinations. The in-depth information provided on each lake, reservoir, and river chosen will guide you to a successful day on that water.

Locations include the best fishing in Montana, Oregon, British Columbia, California, Alberta, Wyoming and Idaho.  For each destination, Michael and Christine include in-depth information, such as: a description of the river and its surroundings; productive techniques and flies; fly shops; accommodations, including campsites and RV parks; restaurants; and much more. 

This book belongs on the shelf of all fly-fishers...those lucky enough to live in this grand region and those who visit its world-famous fly-fishing!

8.5 x 11 inches, 96 pages, all color, 10 detailed maps
