A Handbook for Fly Anglers
By Jim DuFresne
Twelve Classic Trout Streams In Michigan: A Handbook For Fly Anglers is Gerth E. Hendrickson’s 1985 classic that was fully updated and revised by Jim DuFresne. In the new 320-page edition the rivers cover range from the Au Sable main stream and the Manistee to the Pere Marquette, the Boardman and the Black, all among Michigan’s most noted trout streams.
Coverage includes additional access sites, improved maps showing stream bottom structure and wading distances and notes on hatches, commercial guides and lodging for each stream. New sections range from fishing the Hex hatch, visiting the Michigan Trout Fishing Museum and a four-color insert on the 10 flies every angler in Michigan should carry to a series on famous Michigan anglers who have tossed a fly in these classic streams.
“Since it first appeared in 1985, Hendrickson’s book has introduced legions of fly fishers to the state’s most-treasured rivers. In this newest edition, author Jim DuFresne has made a good book better.” – noted outdoor writer Tom Huggler.
