Couldn't put it down - great reading of an evening after skiing this past season!

I received the audiobook version as a gift, it was a great for snowy evening flytying, enjoyed it very much. Look forward to reading the book as well.

Enjoyed it immensely - I thought maybe we could try the same thing here - but for steelhead...

Yes, excellent read. I had it to read on my flight to Vancouver last year and it made the flight go quickly and most pleasantly.

Made into a movie

Not sure how close the movie will follow the book but the trailer looks interesting to me:

Really good book, and looks like the movie will at least try to match it. Good actors and a good director... Just hope they spent the money and got a decent casting instructor for ONCE
