Bud LiIly's career as an angler, guide, and conservationist has played a part in developing and shaping the attitudes of the West. In this book, he shares: the history of fly fishing in the West; his personal history; tackle and techniques for western fly fishing; flies and techniques; locating fish; presentation; guides; floating; good sportsmanship; western waters and western seasons; catch and release; conservation; and more. In the 60's and 70's, the spectacular growth of the ski industry in Colorado brought about dramatic changes in regional economies and also in "who" was attracted to living in the West. The wonderful natural resources of the area, once the domain of miners, loggers, etc., are now becoming the domain of people who think they have a higher value-and are worth a lot more money-if we leave them as they are. This mindset is what has created the 'New West.' 8 1/2 x 11 inches, color insert.
