Steelhead are called “The Fish of a Thousand Casts” for a reason—they are elusive. Even the most experienced anglers will go many trips without hooking, let alone catching, a fish. That challenge is why steelheading becomes a life-long passion for so many.
Marc Davis has been pursuing steelhead for several decades, and was past President of Northwest Steelheaders. In Steelhead Fishing Essentials he shares his years of knowledge and experience, on the page and also in person with the exciting 100-minute DVD that puts Davis’s words into action. Davis, and other expert steelheaders, discuss rods, lines, hooks, terminal tackle, baits, reading water, techniques from the bank or boat, scents, casting, conservation, and more. Dramatic underwater footage and adrenaline-pumping fights on the DVD give action—and credibility—to Davis’s steelheading expertise in the book. So whether you’re new to steelheading or a seasoned veteran, Steelhead Fishing Essentials will put more chrome on your line!
