Author Tom Rosenbauer, Photographs by Brian Grossenbacher, Foreword by Callan Wink
Through storytelling and stunning photography, this journey to the most iconic trout waters is as close to a firsthand experience as you can get—without getting wet.
Trout takes us on a visually stunning tour of the finest trout waters—from the big freestone rivers of the West to tailwaters and tiny creeks and springs. Featuring photography from the Catskills to Patagonia, Appala-chia to the Rockies and Pacific Northwest, this is a life’s compilation of fly-fishing stories and photography. Each section features a photo gallery and an accompanying essay—fish tales—told in Tom Rosenbauer’s unmistakably authentic voice on subjects including big-river mysteries, boats, and guides, wading and solitude, flies, and the trout themselves. For the fly fisherman, this is an album of shared experiences that exist only on these magical trout waters.
