I ordered the book as a pre-sale. Received book first week in August. This is a little different than the typical Landon Mayer book on how to catch BIG fish, which he is very good at.

This book is more of a fishing guide that list's each of the major rivers and many streams in Colorado. It tells about the available hatch for each river and how to fish each hatch in each season. It includes fishing guide advice, and access points. Book also includes a hatch chart along with recommended flies for each hatch on each river. Book breaks up each section of river.

All in all if you are going to have one fly fishing guide book on your bookshelf on how to fly fish Colorado this is it. Landon hit it out of the park with this book.

This is in a paperback book format

If you are heading to Colorado to flyfish, this is a book to own. This book gives great insite on all the areas throughout Colorado. Landon puts you in the middle of everything. I started to tie some of the flies and am looking forward to seeing if some of the trout take my offering.

I loved the book and all the information it gave. The only thing that would have made it any better is if it included road maps to the public fishing areas. Other than that, the background, flies, techniques and strategies were fantastic.

The guide was excellent for the rivers covered. I liked the fact that the fly shops and outfitters were listed in one spot at the end of the book and that their websites were included. I was surprised the North Platte coverage was limited to an insert with the description of the Yampa. The Yampa is a west s.lope stream while the North Platte an east slope stream. I was also surprised the insert was written by someone with St Peters fly shop in Fort Collins rather than someone from North Park Anglers in Walden (both shops are excellent and I have used guides from both). I also think the north park area of Colorado deserved more treatment (even though a lot of water there is private).I'm also surprised that the outfitters listed for the Arkansas didn't include Tim Hill in Leadville. When I look for a guide on new water, I try to find one who operates as close to where I plan on fishing as possible. Leadville is on the upper Arkansas. I've fished most of the waters covered in this book as I grew up in Colorado. ( having moved away in1972after my honeymoon in the Rawah Wilderness Area up the west branch of the Laramie) I return frequently and have fished with several of the guides listed in the guide

The photography was superb and added to the quality of the guide

But, this one is definitely more informative than most. It covers the state's best known Trout streams. It is written by the people who actually spend a lot of time fishing their particular river. It covers; access, campgrounds, fly hatches and approximate dates (with color photographs of fly patterns that match the natural insects and that work on that particular river), best time of the year and divides the river into segments. Photography is outstanding, If you are going to Colorado to fish it is well worth the price.

My husband loves to fly fish and often heads west. He found this book when a guide recommended he purchase it. This one is for our son. Lots of good tips and great directions to the spots they talk about.

This is a great book. Very informative. I just started fly dishing last year and I'm like a sponge when it comes to anything in print about fly fishing. This book is one of the best I've read.
