“Fly Fishing Women Explore Alaska”
Enter the world of fly fishing as adventuresome women cast to a seething mass of sockeye salmon heading for their spawning grounds, master the technique of placing a tiny dry fly in precisely the right spot to tempt a hungry arctic grayling, watch thousand-pound brown bears dive for fish nearby, and much, much more.
FLY FISHING WOMEN is a unique combination in a gift-book format of “how to” fly fishing techniques (including an illustrated section focusing on our favorite flies), stories about the women who learn to fish, and numerous photographs of some of our awesome fishing destinations and unique fish species.
