has closed and has nothing left to sell, other than a few used books. I have decided to leave the website up as a resource for people interested in fishing with light rods, light lines and light lures - true finesse fishing.

Bill Herzog

Spoon Fishing for Steelhead

One of the most effective ways to hook steelhead (as well as salmon) is with a spoon. Bill Herzog covers  the full range of spoon fishing techniques for the full  year, going into finishes, sizes, weights, shapes, water temperature differences, winter and summer fish differences, commercial and custom spoons, spoon parts suppliers and reading water. Scores of color photos along with many line drawings, graphs and other illustrations. If you like to fish for steelhead and salmon you will find the information this book to be invaluable - regardless of how you fish (with fly, bait, plug, spinner, jig or bobber). This is a very revealing, post-graduate fishing technique book sure to please!
