Legendary book in its genre. A true classic, and one of the few books on fishing for golden trout in the high country. Very specific information on lakes and streams. A great read and a must for anyone who loves the High Sierra and the boundless trout fishing it has to offer. Charles McDermand has a wonderful way of telling stories and allows the reader to vicariously experience his adventures. McDermand’s favorite trout cooking method–frying in bacon fat!
