book: "Steelhead Fly Fishing in Low Water"

c. 1996, Forrest Park Publishers, Bellingham, WA; 128 pages. Black and white photos, drawings, and four color plates of the author's flies and dubbing.

The late Dick Van Demark was a highly intelligent, complex, and sometimes ornery individual, a former tech writer for Boeing who worked for decades as a maintenance man for a university, while devoting his energies to the things that interested him most. He was one of the founders of the Fourth Corner Fly Fishers of Bellingham, and probably the most instrumental. (I can say that as the sole surviving founding member.)

This book was the product of decades of dry-line fishing for steelhead, in a region where traditions and the size of our rivers lead most to concentrate on bottom dredging, most of the year. Dick originated the Flat Winged Low-Water Series, the tying and rationale of which are covered here, as in Trey Coomb's "Steelhead Fly Fishing." New condition, authographed by the author. (My own copy will never be for sale in my lifetime.)

$25 plus $2 shipping; PayPal, money order, or cleared personal check.
