500 Trout Streams

(Skip's first book of fly fishing essays)

365 Fly Fishing Tips for Trout, Bass, and Panfish by Skip MorrisSkip's new e-book, 500 Trout Streams, released on June 19, 2020

The Musings and True Tales of a Renowned Fly-Fishing Writer

What happens when a man who’s fly fished for over fifty years, who's graduated with a university degree in English, who’s published 19 print-and-paper books on fly-fishing topics with three publishers, decides to spend three years writing his first book of essays about his beloved sport?

Can you imagine? Well, sure, of course you can—but why imagine when you could just read 500 Trout Streams and find out?

There are stories here to fascinate the fly fisher. Stories about smart trout and simple trout. Stories about trout in spring creeks and real creeks, lakes, tail-waters, and freestone rivers; about waters so remote they can be reached only by seaplane and waters whose banks are clusters of homes and yards alive with squealing kids and bouncing family dogs.

There are alarming stories too—true stories. One about the author, while riding a log raft, nearly getting dragged into a violent surf. Another about his getting caught in a small boat among surfacing whales far north along the coast of western Canada. And another about a stand-off with a murderer.

There are musings, on such matters as the curious world of the professional fly-fishing public speaker, on the ever more common caginess of the “gullible” cutthroat trout, and on the delights and challenges of drift-boat fishing and why the author will probably never be very good at it.

Here is a book about the many amazing and fascinating places fly fishing can carry the fly fisher—carry you—in both body and mind. Go ahead: take the ride.
