Great book

I have read it several times and it is certainly worth adding to your library. It has a lot of info on fishing, but also contains an overview of the life of a dedicated steelheader.

Thumbs up YaZerrr!

Personally met/knew Lani, before-after, and one hell of a wonderful guy. Still watch his original vid's and "See the take??!!!" And I'm back on the edge (20th time?) of my seat .....

Fantastic book. Beautiful photography, great insights and a nice casual "voice" almost as though Lani was sitting across the campfire some evening just musing. One thing I appreciated, (although some others don't) was his lack of "insert tab A into slot B" type advice. He makes it pretty clear that there are no hard and fast rules to the game, and the only way to figure it out is to spend time on the water. Well worth the money on my opinion.--AJ

Using the SEARCH function should turn up a rather lengthy thread that occurred when the book first came out.

Thumbs up Thanks Santa!

The UPS man showed up on Saturday in a cold rainstorm and delivered a package addressed to me from Amazon.com. I tore open the package and inside was this book, A Steelheader's Way. No note or anything saying who it was from. I spent the rest of the day by the fire, labradors curled up and warming my feet as I read that book and escaped into the BC of my imagination. I guess it must have been from Santa Claus because it felt as though Christmas had come early.

For the guys in Canada, Chapters online has a good deal on this book right now. Can't wait to get my copy. Same with Dec's book.

Thumbs up Definitely a Must for Your Library..

Have fished with Lani on the Babine for many years and he has really nailed it.

I will now plan to scan my copy anew as a refresher before fishing in B.C. this spring and fall.

He is even nicer in person too!

Lani Wallers

I read these posts yesterday, and lo - saw Lani Wallers on TV this morning, He was on the Skeena in the program - "Hooked On The Fly" (Sportsman Channel). I'd never seen him before - wow he can really cast. I could be mistaken, but the fly looked like some sort of an intruder. He talked about conservation as well - what a joy!
