A clear, concise guide to fly fishing in Rocky Mountain National Park written by a fly fisher that has spent countless hours hiking the trails, wading the waters and solving the equations to catch fish in this amazing setting.  A must read for any fly fishing enthusiast visiting Rocky Mountain National Park.

Brad Befus,author of Carp on the Fly and Basic Techniques for Successful Fly Tying

This is a must-have guide to the Park.  Steve’s knowledge of the park is incredible — I have fished and guided the park for years and didn’t know there was this much in that little piece of property.  Steve shows us how to explore the park and fish our way through it. Five stars all the way!

There hasn’t been such an authoritative book on fly-fishing Rocky Mountain National Park published before. It will set the standard for future books about specific fly-fishing destinations like national parks, wilderness areas, and the like. I believe that anyone who sets out to write ‘the’ fly-fishing resource for, say, a Yellowstone or a Great Smokies will have to view Schweitzer’s book as the benchmark.

Dick Shinton,long-time Fly Fishing Guide, Rocky Mountain National Park

Typically with this style of book, the reader still has major questions on fishing the area which is being focused on.  You kind of know what to expect, but you’re still mostly lost when you get there…this is far from the case with this book.  I’m guessing people more familiar with the area than I will agree that this is the bible on fishing RMNP- and without telling the reader to fish downstream of the big rock just downstream from the bridge.  This is probably the best fishing destination book I have ever seen…the bar is set high with this one.
