Reviews - What do customers think about Fly Fishing the Solitude: Montana?
Dissapointed Jan 1, 2008
I was a bit dissapointed. From the title and the reviews, I was expecting a book describing different off-the-beaten-path fly fishing locations in Montana. I did expect a "how to" guide discussing basics like equipment and technique.
Photography Matches Narrative in Excellence Jan 11, 2007
It isn't often that a fly fishing book offers both outstanding photography and narrative at the same high levels of excellence, but Badovinac provides unparalled descriptions in both forms. It is a tabletop gem and a wonderful reference at the same time. In a word, it's a treasure.
What every nature lover should know Jul 19, 2006
I don't even fish, but I bought the book for the beautiful stories and photos. As I got into the book, I found out that it was so much more than a collection of stories and photos. There's info about navigation that everyone who hikes, wanders, fishes, hunts, or just loves nature should read. Do you know the steps to take if you're lost? Do you know how to navigate, whether it's light or dark? Don't you think you should? And you can with this book.
The value of the navigation info led me to view Trapper's other book, Fly Fishing Montana's Missouri River. Guess what--he gave us something similar there-- what we should all know about etiquette. No, not table manners--outdoor manners. The ones you wish everyone else would follow. Let's start by learning and following them ourselves.
The ONLY book that speaks to todays Flyfishing Experiance Jul 15, 2006
Even if you have been fishing for Thirty years I gaurentee that this book will change; where, when and how you fly fish like no other. Professionals and recreational fly fishers alike will count this book a one of their most prized Fly fishing tools posessions. It is the only book on fishing that I have read cover to cover in one sitting. At times Trappers story telling had me laughing out loud, his tales speak to the reasons we love the sport, but most of all he is unparalelled in organizing and presenting a life time dedicated to flyfishing in a way that will de-mystify the reasons for succsess or failure and transform your personal experiance of Fly Fishing in practical terms. Never has this much technical information been presented inter mixed with true life stories and stunning photograpy in such a way that will change your approach to Fly Fishing and your experiance of the places it brings you forever.
Trapper knows solitude Jul 15, 2006
I started flyfishing, alone, many years ago. I tie flies commercially and am a guide. Trapper has captured the essance of why we fish, and why, sometimes, why we NEED to be alone, male or female. I've known Trapper for MANY years and have swapped flies and lies... and MANY fun days on the river with him. Know this ....Trap's book captures WHY WE ARE WHO WE ARE. Knowing Trapper and his philosify has changed how I view the world and my perceptions in many ways!
