What's missing? Detailed info on access. I found very little specific access information, usually buried in the river descriptions. I need to know where I can park, walk, etc. to fish these beautiful waters.
There are fewer specific fly recommendations. There is no recommended fly section like in Robbins book. The sportfish of Idaho section is confused and unorganized. Also, the table of contents is disorganized and difficult to use.
Most annoying is a strange overuse of "dashes". Words like "Rain-bow", "life-long" and "do-nate" are everywhere...what gives?. Finally, I found Robbins book's maps to be far better because they show you where in Montana each map is taken from so it's much easier to determine if the location is feasible from where you will be. Not a feature of Retallic's book(s). I'm not trying to trash Retallic, just think that the book could be alot more helpful to visitors of Idaho.
On the positive side, the river descriptions are pretty good and the "seasons" section looks helpful.
I would think that the "Flyfishers Guide" series could gain alot from organizing all of it's books in a manner similar to Robbin's.
