The McMillans embraced that approach as anglers, naturalists, photographers and scientists – and now, lucky for us, they have compressed their deep knowledge into a beautiful coffee table book.
"May the Rivers Never Sleep – Living with North Pacific Rivers as Calendars in the Footsteps of Roderick Haig-Brown. By Bill & John McMillan. Frank Amato …ariverneversleeps.com/2013/01/"
John, a salmon ecologist, learned about fish and fishing at the elbow of his father, Bill, one of the founders of the Wild Fish Conservancy. And one senses from reading this book that the son has brought his own perspective to the waterfront, allowing both of them to expand their understanding of nature in a way that they would not have done, working alone. They make a fabulous team.
It is a good read and would make a very good present to a trout angler.
