He then offers his suggestions for the best places to go, broken down by season (and weather conditions) to give visitors the best chance of success during their visit to this wonderful National Park; all seasons are included, beginning in early spring and ending with the snows of winter. He takes you from the lowland Carbon River Rain Forest to 14,411-foot Columbia Crest, the summit of Mt. Rainier. His recommendations are offered to all audiences, from roadside tourists to day hikers to backpackers - there is something for everyone.
Authors Ted Peck and Ed Rychkun cut through the mystique and complexity surrounding fly fishing and come up with the twelve basic skills needed to understand and enjoy this engrossing art. Tec Peck has been hooked on fishing for more than sixty years, giving him lots of time to develop and hone the essential techniques of fly fishing. Ted became a professional sports fisherman in 1956, and over the years he has written numerous articles on fishing. He ran a charter boat company out of West Vancouver and treated more than 10,000 customers to a West Coast fishing Experience. The former host of the national fishing show Tides and Trails, as well as several radio talk shows, Peck now teaches night school, sharing his appreciation of and respect for the environment with new generations of fishermen. Ed Rychkun has authored a number of Hancock House books that explore fishing and other recreational pursuits. An active and dedicated fisherman, Ed has fished local waters for more than thirty-five years.
