Fifty Places to Fly Fish Before You Die by Chris Santella

Fifty PlacesThis is not a standard fishing guide. As the title suggests, the author takes you on what can only be described as an epic journey, visiting the 50 best fly fishing destinations around the world. The locations are described in vivid and mouthwatering detail, inspiring humble readers like us to check our bank accounts and dream of following in Santella’s footsteps. It’s not a detailed guidebook but a celebration of international angling. It’s also designed to inspire the reader to make angling trips of his or her own. What more could you want in a fishing guide-book?
There’s no doubt that Santella captures the majesty and wonder of the locations visited. He’ll leave you wanting more, but also gives a useful insight into the harsh reality of making such trips – cost, time, tackle requirements and more. And while sometimes the astonishing costs and ludicrously long tackle checklists may be disheartening, for those lucky enough to make this kind of trip, the recommendations and insights will also provide a really useful resource for holiday planning.
If nothing else, this is a great read. For those who are deliberating between different overseas trips, it’s a great comparison tool too. But for those of us who can’t visit 50 exotic fishing locations, which is probably most of us, at least we get to hear about them!
