I bought the book from Bill's shop in Canon City. I thought the book was a good companion to the knowledge I prevoiusly had. I like the combination of real experience by season as written.
I especially liked the fly tying section. Bill explains how and when those flies are used.
Bottom line; this is the only book I use for catching fish on the Arkansas river in Colorado.

Valuable resource--since I will be fishing on the Arkansas for the first time this year!!!!

Nothing about fishing the river that wasn't in Marty Bartholomews book. There was a whole section on tying flies for the Arkansas, but since I don't tie, the book wasn't very valuable to me. Didn't teach me anything new.
