Portait of a Fly Fishing Legend
BY  BEN TAYLOR

     Bill Schaadt was one of the most prolific anglers and unique individuals to ever cast a fly line in California's North Coast rivers.  Arguably one of the greatest anglers that ever lived, Bill was a legend long before he passed away in 1995, and anglers who knew Bill still talk about him today as if he were just around the next bend. 
     
      Now, in a beautiful tribute to this amazing individual is a collection of fascinating tales as told by 30 of his friends - those who had the unforgettable experience of fishing with him. With 208 pages, and over 100 pictures in full color, this hard-cover book spans the forty years that Bill fished - 1955 to 1995. These were the "heyday" years of steelhead and salmon fishing on the West Coast, and Bill's passing may well have marked the end of that era. 
     
      I Know Bill Schaadt is available in a hard-cover Regular Edition or a special, Limited Edition of just 150 copies. The Limited Edition comes with a beautiful matching slipcase and will be personally numbered and signed by the author, Ben Taylor.
