Roderick L. Haig-Brown is one of the world's most beloved and popular fly-fishing writers. His books bring together exquisite prose and the limitless art and joy of fishing, along with solid and timeless advice.

First published in 1959, and the most popular of Haig-Brown's fishing titles, Fisherman's Summer includes absorbing descriptions of fishing Haig-Brown's home river--the Campbell in British Columbia--for steelheads and cutthroats. He tells stories of the Native people and pioneers who once fished this same river, and looks into the future with hopes that the river will be conserved.

Now available in a handsome deluxe hardcover format, this is a book to be read and reread for pleasure, and no angler's bookshelf is complete without it.
