Kerry,

Love it; but Clay probably caught a 30# Skagit winter run on the Clearwater in October with the same little pink fly. He is da man!

Is that really the title? I have no idea who this guy is, but that is so tacky that I'd have to take a look.

Is this book available to us Muggles, or is it strictly available in Diagon Alley?

Hey, why doesn't one of you review the book for the rest of us?

Comments so far seem to be dripping venom. What's the reel story?

The book was published last April and is available from the usual suspects. ISBN 142084119X

Cheers,

Eric

Kudos to him for having the balls to self-publish. I'll wait for the paperback, at a used bookstore.

The book is a paperback, apparently. Eighty pages for $35. Pricey for sure.

Maybe the book will be remaindered and you can pick it up really cheap.

Geeze! $35.00 bucks is over the top for 80'ish pages .. including photos. That said, I know Clay (no contact for several months now) and he can be a 'bit over the top' with his enthiasum (sp?), but I've got to give him credit, he is VERY good with a one hander fly rod.

Fellow really does have the 'knack' at finding/hooking steelhead in low/lower water conditions.

Fred,

It is not hard to locate and catch hatchery fish in low/lower water conditions. The fact that someone actually wrote a book about it is more amazing to me then catching concentrated brats below the hatchery. Sort of like fishing below the dam on the Rogue. Who really cares?

For those who may not have been privy to the history behind this thread, the author has been known to publicly inflate the potency of certain flies of his design and attest to his own seemingly supernatural fishing prowess in a manner that solicits rebuttal and overshadows any skill he might actually posess.

For all I know he really could be a great catcher of fish, however first-hand I have only witnessed that he is an even better pusher of self-promoting propaganda. Of the most accomplished anglers I have known it's the quietly confident ones that are worthy of the highest respect and admiration.

I do admire his guts, and once again he does have some nice fish pics to show... it must mean he's got something figured out - but perhaps many of us are happy to untangle our own steelheading mysteries, some of us aren't too bad at it either. If there has been one thing we'd learned over our own experiences there is no magic fly, and there is no single technique for all situations in steelheading.
