From the life history of a steelhead egg to his own history of how he became consumed with learnig everything he could.
Excellent color photography accompanied with diagrams and instruction, this book is a must have.

An excellent look at fishing for one of the greatest and most difficult fish to catch on the fly. Dec really does have a passion for steelhead and conveys that well to the reader. One of the best books on the details of how to approach the water and how the fish respond to the fly. I really have enjoyed this book and will use it as a reference for years to come.

Anyone who is obsessed with steelhead fishing should read this book! My husband can't put it down. 3 times he's read it now and it stays permanently by his night stand. He has every book imaginable on fly fishing but this is the one he keeps wanting to read again and again.
He says it's the best book of it's kind.

A Passion for Steelhead is a great book. I read it from cover to cover, and I actually never intended to - it's that good. Not only does the author express his passion for steelhead *and* fishing in words, he delivers on useful and even critical content for any angler who's looking to improve their skills.

I bought this book with the hope to build skills and knowledge, and it delivered. At the same time, it gave so much more - a real appreciation for the fish, the river, the flies and a great example of someone who lived their dream.

It's the best book I've read on the subject.
