During their nine month walk they swept back and forth across the Sierra, hiking nearly every pass and fishing many of the waters.

The directory alone includes trout information about 500-plus streams and 1700 lakes! Learn about the different species of trout, what they eat and where they live. Information about hatches, fly fishing equipment and successful techniques. Backcountry ethics are stressed. the sierras are a wonderfully different experience. Enjoy and understand them even better with Ralph Cutter's Sierra Trout Guide!"
