Will fly fishing survive the twenty-first 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. Tradition, conservation of land and water, a foresighted ethic, concerns for the sport of other anglers, a commitment to the next generation, and much more—these are at the heart of Guernsey’s explorations in this path-breaking book. In Beyond Catch & Release he draws a road map into the future for the sport of fly fishing and all those who love it.
