Fly fishing is a sport demanding patience and an almost Zen-like attitude. In places like Idaho, it is a passion for many.

My Work Dec 13, 2007
I just want to say it was an honor and privilege to work on such a wonderful project with my mentor David Stoecklein. Thank you to all those who helped during production and post production of this book (and those who have purchased a copy or two:). I am very proud of the book and had a wonderful time discovering what Idaho and the environment are all about. I hope this book inspires you to go outside and explore the wonderful state of Idaho. Idaho is a very special state! Enjoy the book and please don't forget to protect the environment. Enjoy the outdoors - Tight Lines. - rra
awesome Oct 21, 2007
I first purchased a copy of this book directly from the photographer in our local town! After paging through and getting caught up in the beautiful images, I ended up ordering 6 more on this site as gifts for friends and coworkers! Some recipients were avid fly fisherman, some were just learning the skill, and others simply appreciated the beautiful pictures and artistic eye of Randolph Ashton. Admittedly I am not the fisherman of the family, but after chatting with the author (a sweet guy with a sincere passion for his work) and enjoying the book with many, I can highly reccomend this product- you won't be dissappointed!
Very disappointed Aug 16, 2007
This is the only book that I have ever returned to this site for a credit. I was hoping for something that my husband, who is an avid fly fisherman, and had fished most of the places that were filmed, would find familiar pools, and terrain. The colors were so vibrant, absolutely nothing looked natural. Perhaps if it were considered an art book, it would please some.
Stunning photography Jan 10, 2007
As a fly fishing author and photographer myself, I keep pretty close track of the competition. Randolph Ashton has shot to the top of the pack with his stunning shots of his home waters in Idaho. Will Rice
