"When the smell of snow filled my nostrils I was immediately transported back to the San Juan, The Split, the company of one of the best fishing buddies I ever had and the presence of large gray trout sipping the tiniest of gray flies in a gray river beneath a gray sky opposite tall, gray sandstone cliffs obscured by snowflakes the size and shape of mallard breast feathers that landed in the stillness with a discernible plop." Rising out of southern Colorado's majestic San Juan Mountains and flowing through the arid hardscrabble of the Southwest, the San Juan River is a classic tailwater fishery renowned for easy access and trophy-sized trout. Featuring a new introduction by author Steven Meyers, this fly-fishing classic describes the natural history and sporting opportunities found on his beloved home water. An eloquent advocate for the San Juan, Meyers shares tales of friendship, adventure, and angling that flow readily from days on the trout stream. Book jacket.
