Reviews - What do customers think about Flyfisher's Guide to Michigan (Flyfishers Guidebooks)?
A Must for Michigan Flyfishers Feb 3, 2008
This guide is as inspirational as it is informative. Includes many odd bits of information (catch and release sections, no fishing from bank areas, areas too deep or too narrow to fish effectively) that would be very difficult to find out other than from hard experience. Very informative as to what fish you can expect to find in certain sections of streams -- I could go on and on. But won't. Just buy it!
Flyfisher's Guide to Michigan May 14, 2007
This is an outstanding book. Jim Bedford writes a clear, easy to understand guidebook for the masses, not just the elite. I have read many guidebooks and this is in my top five. His research is exhaustive and knowledge extensive. If you plan to dampen a fly in Michigan you need this book! Rik
Book is a flyfishers guide to michigan Mar 11, 2006
This book is includes all the streams, rivers, and waterways of Michigan, with information on what fish are in them, seasons to fish, lures to use, and other information. I found it to great not just for the information it has on the fish, but on all the other stuff- how to get to the best spots, things to watch out for, noise/distractions around the river, ease of access, etc. Using this book, you will have a realistic picture of what the fishing experience is going to be like.
Wonderful Starting point May 22, 2002
This book is a great guide to the many rivers I have spent time on in Michigan. It is not going to put you on the honey-holes, but it will provide you with good maps and the right strategies to have a sucessful day on the river. It also provides area business #'s, which I have found helpful on several occassions. Jim Bedford knows what he is taking about. Great investment.
Everything I had hoped for. Mar 14, 2001
Being fairly new to fly fishing for trout, I was looking for some help in where to go and what to use so I would not have to start from scratch. Jim has obviously been there and done that. His tips, techniques, and sites are outstanding. This book is a must for anyone getting started and a great asset to those who are looking for additonal information. Thank you for sharing your experiences in such a great book.
