“As any ardent fisherman knows, the waters of Yellowstone National Park afford some of the sportiest fishing to be had in America. Every year more than 10,000 anglers visit the Park, yet until now there has been no appropriate guide book available. Here, at last, is a book which will give you all the information necessary for a successful expedition to these waters.” — dust jacket promotional blurb.
