Editorial Reviews

Review

What is obvious, as French considers this and other Yellowstone dilemmas, is how sincerely the author hopes his outlier perspective might save Yellowstone fisheries from sins he has seen or at least prompt us to test assumptions. (Fly Rod & Reel)

[French] likes a good yarn, and his Yellowstone adventure is full of colourful details. There are close encounters with grizzly bears, lightning strikes and oddball Americans, as well as page after page devoted to hymning one of the world’s most dramatic landscapes.

And, of course, there’s also a load of information about the cutthroat, its biology and connection to Yellowstone, as well as handy descriptions of fishing conditions at sites all across the park and surrounding areas. French is never more engaging than when his eyes are on the water and the fish are rising. -- The Australian (The Australian)

"Through a combination of humor, and enviable working knowledge of local and natural history, along with powers of observation honed in a lifetime of trout fishing, French conducts a casual but keen investigation into the sordid history of trout in the greater Yellowstone ecosystem." Fly Fishman Magazine


"In this beautifully written memoir, Greg French fulfills an angler's dream and realizes his role in the protection of the fish he loves." -- Craig Mathews, cofounder of 1% for the Planet and owner or Blue Ribbon Flies


Australian writer and legendary fisherman Greg French lays it all out for us in his new book The Imperiled Cutthroat (Patagonia, $25), where he spins an enchanting narrative of a trip to the U.S. and his first exploration of Yellowstone. Led by his captivation with cutthroat, his tale takes the reader on a beautiful trip chasing trout (and running into bears) in some of the last wild waters of Tasmania, Mongolia, and Montana. His writing seems effortless and balanced, often philosophical, with just enough humor to offset heavier themes of conservation and history. —Outside Bozeman Magazine

"...an interesting read for anyone who is interested in conservational work and the protection of our beloved trout." fin-chasers.com


A work of real substance, this is a deep and thoughtful multi-day read. (FlyLIfe Magazine)

From the Inside Flap


"In this beautifully written memoir, Greg French fulfills an angler's dream and realizes his role in the protection of the fish he loves." -- Craig Mathews, cofounder of 1% for the Planet and owner or Blue Ribbon Flies

Yellowstone, the world's first national park and one of America's truly great trout fisheries, has been a crucible for ideas on how to look after wild places. Management practices that have worked there -- and a good many that have not -- have been transported around the globe.

Renowned Australian fishing writer Greg French gives a firsthand account of how the park's history, landscapes, wildlife, and people have entwined themselves in the psyche of anglers worldwide. More importantly, he tell us why this matters.

As always, the owner of Greg's stories comes not only from the quality of the writing, but also from the quirks and passions of the people he meets. The Imperiled Cutthroat is compelling storytelling -- deeply intelligent and philosophical -- that will enthrall anglers and naturalists the world over.
