"One of my favorite guides, and a great "take along" for interstate road-trips, is Trout Unlimited's Guide to America's 100 Best Trout Streams. It's a great way to see your state, or a state you're visiting."-www.troutworld.com
Praise for Sports Afield Guide to North America's Greatest Fishing Lodges, also by John Ross:
"Ross, a contributing editor to Sports Afield magazine, and Anders, a writer and editor for Country Inns magazine, have created an excellent companion guide for those who love to fish. Whether rustic settings with cooking facilities or full-service lodgings, they are in here. Beginning with the East and continuing through eight other areas of North America, the authors offer vital statistics, including fish species, season, rates, other possible activities, and a brief description of both the fishing and the lodging. They also offer useful travel tips, for example, on what and how to pack and information concerning shipping fish home. There is a brief list of references for each part of the country. A valuable tool for fishing travelers; recommended for all libraries."
"This smart, thorough guide covers more than 250 freshwater and saltwater fishing lodges in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean. Whether you enjoy stalking high-mountain brook trout on tiny flies or throwing wiggly worms to largemouth bass in southern swamps, you can find a destination resort, ranch, or wilderness floatplane drop-off that will satisfy your fishing needs and budget."
