Book Reviews for Montana Fishing Guide Books and Fly Fishing in General

Montana Fishing Guide Book Recommendations:  Since my own book went out of publication, I have searched through Amazon to discover new guide books on the market.  I remember how puzzled I was when someone wrote a negative review on Amazon complaining that I devoted too much content on camping.  Oddly enough he did not read the title of my book, "Montana Fly-Fishing and Camping Guide."  He took umbrage that I organized the book not by watershed, which can be most confusing at times, but by Montana state highways and roads within a specific region.  All of this information was in the introductory pitch.  I never rebutted his comments, as I was closing out my inventory.  What is most troubling to me is the number of negative, ignorant reviews that I find on Amazon.  Readers, be leery of wanna-be critics who rate books as 1 or 2!

I love a good guide book.  They save me precious time and money.  Ask yourself if you want a guide book that you can mark up, dog-ear and toss on the dashboard, or do you want something to lay out on your coffee table in your den.  If you are like me, you will want both, and from more than one author! Every book that I include below is a favorite!
