Former editor in chief of Fly Rod and Reel magazine Paul Guernsey delves into both the traditions and the future of fly fishing in this exploratory examination of the steps that need to be taken in order to ensure the sport's continuation. Ross Douglas performs with a distinct purity that elevates the already apparent thoughtfulness of Guernsey's analysis. Beyond Catch and Release is an important listen for anglers in the modern age, stressing a code of ethics for fishermen that underscores the necessity of ecological awareness for the sake of their beloved pastime's future.
Will fly fishing survive the 21st century? Author and angler Paul Guernsey argues that angling and the natural resources it depends upon - clear rivers, unpolluted oceans, and much more - are threatened by a host of increasingly complex social and environmental factors.

This is an enjoyable nonfiction examination of fly-fishing. We hear about how to be good conservationists and how to get along with other fishers. Good for all ages.
