Description

From the wisdom of fishing legend Mo Bradley, an essential guide to fly fishing for trout in the Thompson-Okanagan.

Among fly fishers, the Kamloops region in British Columbia’s Thompson-Okanagan is known as one of the best places in the world for catching trout. It owes its reputation in part to Mo Bradley, a man of humble origins now known as a pioneer of fly-fishing culture.

In Trout School, award-winning author and journalist Mark Hume passes on what he’s learned from his countless hours on—and off—the lake with the master. Drawing from more than twenty years of fishing and friendship, Hume distills the best of Mo’s essential knowledge, including tips and tricks for catching Kamloops trout year-round, detailed instructions for tying thirteen signature flies, and advice for a more respectful and ecologically conscious approach to fishing. But Trout School is more than just a guidebook. Hume illustrates these lessons with beautifully descriptive stories about his own times on the water—with Mo, by himself, or teaching his own young daughters to fish. Illustrated with stunning paintings by BC artist Nana Cook, the result is both a thoughtful tribute to a fly-fishing legend and an invaluable resource for experienced anglers and novices alike.
