A complete species-by-species guide to the ultimate fishing destination.Top Water is a fishing book as immense in scope as the state it describes. Each of the ten major gamefish species is covered in chapters that give species biology and life history and then provide fishing information such as where to look for that fish, timing, tactics, fly theory, and gear requirements. From steelhead to cohos and sockeyes, from giant kings to feisty pinks, from vibrant rainbows to surprise grayling, char and lake trout, each chapter finishes with a thorough discussion of the species' range in Alaska with highlights on those rivers and drainages that will interest fly fishers. Alaska is a dream fishing destination for anglers from around the world. Top Water does justice to those fantasies with more than 100 beautiful and informative full-color photographs. You'll see the natural beauty of the venues these fish inhabit as well as the details of what each species looks like, what kind of tackle you'll need, and what flies will be most effective. Full color maps offer quick reference for where to look for each species. Top Water is more than a coffee table book; it's a comprehensive and definitive reference work; it's an armchair travelogue and a guidebook all in one. This guide to the fabled state of Alaska should be in every angling book outlet and part of every angling collection wherever that may be. Full-color throughout, 15 maps.
