Many consider permit (tropics), steelhead (West Coast), and Atlantic salmon (East Coast) the holy trinity of the well-traveled fly fisherman. Though the methods and environments vary, all three species have attained an almost mythical status and can be, at times, extremely difficult to catch on fly. Author Jim Stenson chronicles his life of adventures chasing these fish, sharing entertaining stories as well as insights into catching these fish.
