When Steelhead Dreams debuted in 2001, it was heralded as the new “bible” on the Great Lakes steelhead fly-fishing.

Now, twelve years later Matt Supinski is back with a fully updated version of this bestseller.

With global climate change and new aquatic invaders in the Great Lakes, the river and lake ecosystems have changed drastically-and so have the steelhead and their runs. Master angler and guide Matt Supinski spends 300 days a year chasing steelhead so he’s on top of it. He also discusses new tackle technology; Spey, Skagit & Scandi casting and fishing; new fly plates with hot new steelhead flies’ pioneering Great Lakes personalities; expands chapters on lake-run brown trout and the emerging Atlantic salmon fishery in the Great Lakes. Everyone can learn from one of America’s top steelhead guides.
