If you love floating and fishing Montana's incredible rivers, Kit Fischer's new book Paddling Montana, comes out this Monday, June 1st.
I made a few contributions to this book and was thrilled to receive a pre-release copy! The book is excellent. The write-ups are very clear and concise. The river diagrams alone make this a welcome addition to any serious any fisherman's, rafter's or kayaker's library. The book is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble It hits the bookshelves June 1 and can be purchased online and through other booksellers.
Not only is this a great book, but I've been friends with Kit and his his dad, Hank Fischer, for many years. Hank wrote the original book. Hank just got back last week from bonefishing at Grey's Point in the Bahamas! Who better to take advice from than this experienced duo!

Paddling Montana official press release info:
Paddling Montana, formerly "The Floater's Guide to Montana" has been bouncing around in pickup gloveboxes since the late 1970s. Now covering 36 Montana rivers, from the Yaak to the Yellowstone, it provides full color maps, photos and mileage information to plan your next adventure. For the DIY fisherman to have all of Montana's river information in one place is extremely useful: put-ins, take-outs, mileage, obstacles, optimal flows, shuttle information and key historical facts (with a focus on Lewis and Clark). The guide, however, is obviously bent towards fishermen as a new section appears in every chapter depicting the float fishing opportunities.
