The Secrets of Yellowstone...
Nate's charge was to find a handful of fly fishing experts (why he called me, I'll never know) and get them to spill the beans about their favorite fly fishing destinations inside the park. We chatted for a bit, and I finally relented, relaying a completely true--swear to God--story about fishing a little tributary to Shoshone Lake called DeLacy Creek.
Nate relays the tale quite accurately in his new book, "Fly Fishing Yellowstone National Park: 50 Best Places," so I won't share it here, other than to say that it was one of the more memorable moments of my fly fishing life, and I was probably closer to getting clobbered by a cow moose than I knew at the time, or would care to admit even now.
If you're a fan of Yellowstone--or if you've never been there, but hope to visit one day--you'll love Nate's book. It comes with my highest recommendation (good luck with that, Nate).
