I received a heavyweight package in the mail today from my friend Jim Klug. In the carefully wrapped bundle was Jim’s new book, Fly Fishing Belize. If only I’d walked to the post office instead of riding my bike. This book is so full of information and Jim’s own stunning photography that pedaling home with the masterpiece nearly sent me over the handle bars several times.
Once home I grabbed a seat on the porch expecting to make a quick glance. Instead I was so impressed I browsed every page taking more than two hours. I’ve seen a lot of fly fishing books hit the streets in recent years but none as captivating as this.
Fly Fishing Belize provides an in-depth look at all the country has to offer anglers, information on the fish and fisheries, fishing advice, maps, history and writings from several long time anglers to Belize including Lefty Kreh. All held together with Jims amazing photography of the fish and the fishing, landscapes, people, flies, tackle and the list goes on. This book speaks to those who have been to Belize and will send those who haven’t into a tail spin doing anything they can to make the trip happen.
With Christmas around the corner and saltwater fly fishing season just kicking off I wanted to showcase Jim’s new book on today’s blog. The book is a must-have for both saltwater flats anglers and non-anglers who truly appreciate the scenic beauty of this Caribbean country. Fly Fishing Belize is hot off the press and now available at Jim Klug Outdoor Photography.
