Advanced Fly Fishing for Great Lakes Steelhead in a sense represents the completion of a trilogy. The first book of the series, Fly Fishing The Great Lakes Tributaries, was a primer for fly anglers looking to experience the fishery, written when there was little material on the subject. The second book, Fly Fishing For Great Lakes Steelhead, focused on the history, fish, techniques and rivers. In the ten to fifteen years before this book was published there had been significant changes in attitudes, improvements in the fisheries, and technological advancements in equipment that required yet another treatise on the subject.
This book isn't intended to be the last word on Great Lakes steelheading but rather an update on how far the fishery has progressed and a look into the future. The objectives of this work are fairly simple -- to present many thoughts and observations from over 30 years of experience, to provide insight aimed an increasing the quality of the fishing experience, and to discuss techniques and strategies for the Great Lakes fishery that have not been discussed in depth prior to this book.
