Ben Taylor - Bill was one of the most prolific anglers and unique individuals to ever cast a fly line in California's North Coast rivers. Now, in a beautiful tribute to this amazing individual, is a collection of fascinating tales as told by 30 of his friends - those who had the unforgettable experience of fishing with him.
Arguably one of the greatest anglers that ever lived, Bill was a legend long before he passed away in 1995, and anglers who knew Bill still talk about him today as if he were just around the next bend. This hard-cover book spans the forty years that Bill fished - 1955 to 1995. These were the "heyday" years of steelhead and salmon fishing on the West Coast, and Bill's passing may well have marked the end of that era.
