and hiking along the John Muir trail. His stories really peaked my interest but I had no idea
where to begin researching the "wheres" and "how to"s.
Mr. Beck's book, Trout Fishing the John Muir Trail was just what I needed. I enjoyed his "down to
earth" approach and the many wise tips he shares regarding not only locations but equipment
(be sure to take a backup rod) clothing and essential flies. The book is an easy read at 96
pages but chock full of great info.
He not only shares what he believes are typical size and species for a given fishery, he also shares which possible fisheries are likely barren. His work is based not only extensive fishing, but also review of Cal. Dept. of Fish and Game and other fish planting reports.
If there was a limit to the book in my mind, it was the limited maps. I would like to have seen a bit more detail, including some topo data. It is probably not a shortcoming as he describes the name and location of the fisheries well. A properly equipped hiker should have a decent USGS or other map that would be adequate for locating the fishery with the descriptions provided by the author. Kudos to the author for his work.
Big fun ahead.
I highly recommend this book!
