(Description) Minor bump to spine ends on both book & jacket. ***(Synopsis) For Michael Checchio, fly fishing has been a process of refinement and personal introspection, a journey that included dropping everything and moving to the West to fly fish - particularly the North Umpqua for steelhead. In humorous and beautiful prose, Checchio recounts his years as a novice and self-taught New Jersey fly fisherman, and how he set out to find the hallowed trout-fishing Mecca's of the Rocky Mountain West. Along the way we meet iconoclasts, wildlife, and the breathtaking landscapes of fly fishing's most fabled Western rivers, and at journey's end is the West Coast, and the pursuit of the beautiful and elusive steelhead.
