Richard Parks and Walter Wiese are both avid readers and writers. Combined, they've authored or co-authored six books on fly fishing, all focusing at least partially on fly fishing Montana and Yellowstone National Park. Only one of these books is now out-of-print. This page provides introductions to these books, as well as information on how to purchase them. The books are listed in order of publication date, oldest to most recent.
In addition to the following books, our shop and/or our flies have been featured in many other books about fly fishing the Yellowstone area, ranging from dedicated angling and fly tying guidebooks to general tourist handbooks.
Fly Fishing Yellowstone Country is an e-book guide to fly fishing Yellowstone Park and the Yellowstone region in southern Montana, including the Yellowstone River and its tributaries, the Madison and Gallatin Rivers and their tributaries, and the upper Missouri River. It is the most recent book covering these areas in detail and is the only one available in a low-priced e-book edition.
Fly Fishing Yellowstone Country serves as a good companion book to Richard's book noted above, since this book provides abundant hatch and fly pattern information as well as covers fishing tactics, but focuses less on access.
Purchase Fly Fishing Yellowstone Country in Kindle format from Amazon.
Walter wrote the North Yellowstone chapter of this large-format book discussing the best American national parks for fly fishing. You can purchase it from Amazon.
