[Cat. 2107] 17-0146 z. –Inscribed: “To Don [Labbe] For all the years we’ve shared in our love for fly fishing and fly fishers. All the best, Mike Lawson 01/14/06” Mike Lawson runs an exceptional guiding operation and tackle shop at Henry’s Fork Anglers, which fronts on one of the best large spring creeks in the world. Every year, some of the best fly fishers in the world try their hand on this stream. Many go back chastened. Mike has taught numerous anglers how to fish this stream [and many others] without going in to the latinized exuberance of some anglers. I used to teach aquatic entomology and fly casting in Andy Puyans’ fishing schools on the Henry’s Fork. Andy used Mike Lawson for all the guiding operations. In this book, Mike surveys many famous spring creeks in the USA and elsewhere. His advice has applications in many waters. He has an easy writing style that walks you through problems on the stream. Near the end, he has an excellent chapter titled “Responsibilities” which deals with angling ethics and crowding. It is one of the best expositions I have read. In a succinct chapter on flies, Mike shows color photos and dressings for 41 spring creek specials. Superlative book. Very Fine in Fine DJ. [$30] $27
