A compact angler's guide to year-round fly fishing on Vancouver Island

Book Description
Combine moderate year-round temperatures with everything from small creeks, rivers and lakes to vast expanses of saltwater beaches and protected inshore waters, and it’s easy to understand why Vancouver Island is considered an angler’s paradise.

Island Fly Fisherman is a compact guide written by nine expert anglers. Compiled and edited by Robert H. Jones and Larry E. Stefanyk, it will provide everyone interested in fly fishing with solid information on where and when to go, and which tackle, tactics and fly patterns will produce the best results.

The locations and topics covered include smallmouth bass lakes on southern Vancouver Island and Saltspring Island, dredging for bottom fish, beach-fishing strategies and flies for cutthroat trout plus pink and coho salmon, fishing the lakes and streams for rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout, a "go to" fly that always works as a searching pattern, open-ocean tactics and fly patterns that will work anywhere off the coast of Vancouver Island, and how to tie 46 proven fly patterns.

Whether you’re a stillwater fly fisher who concentrates on lakes, a river specialist who insists that trout be caught only from moving water, a winter-run steelhead fanatic who braves icy water or a diehard advocate of summer-run steelhead, a "beach bum" or an open-water saltwater fly flinger, the expert advice offered in this book will make it well worth reading. The nine contributors have over 400 combined years of fly fishing experience. That they were willing to share this wealth of knowledge with others who are interested in this interesting, challenging, and ever-growing pastime, makes Island Fly Fisherman an excellent addition to any fly fisher’s library.
