Spinner Fishing for Steelhead, Salmon and Trout

Third Edition

From the Introduction: "When Frank Amato and I discussed my idea, Spinner Fishing for Steelhead, Salmon and Trout back in 1983, we had no idea that it would become a best-selling book. Spinner fishing for steelhead is a very specialized topic. But also, one must remember that in 1982, the year I began writing this book, serious spinner fishing for steelhead was virtually nonexistent in the Pacific Northwest and practiced by relatively few anglers in the Great Lakes. How things have changed! Spinner fishing for steelhead is now commonplace. What's more, it is the fastest growing steelhead technique nationwide, attracting novices as well as converts from more traditional methods."  -  Jed Davis

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
