In a new book out this summer, co-owner and founder Terry Gunn of Lees Ferry Anglers Fly Shop is talking all things tailwaters. The book, "50 Best Tailwaters to Fly Fish," expounds on information you need to be successful on each river. Not only do tailwaters allow trout fishing year round, they are also important economically to the sport of fly fishing.
Featuring local experts and contributing authors, the book is a helpful resource not only on each tailwater, but also provides insight by the person who’s wading boots have been in the water for a long time.
This video highlights one such tailwater, the Colorado River at Lees Ferry. Near the base of the Glen Canyon Dam, this tailwater is known as the "World’s Largest Spring Creek.”
"50 Best Tailwaters to Fly Fish" will be out on the bookshelves in late summer 2013.
