Somewhere during his five decades as a professional photographer, Grant McClintock’s name became synonymous with fly fishing. This status is largely due to the success of two collaborative books featuring “flywaters” of the West.
A passionate fly-fisher since young adulthood, McClintock took on an idea that was sparked at a gathering of friends. Mike Crockett describes the moment as “a pleasant cocktail hour” with the McClintocks in Ketchum. They later enlisted Jack Hemingway, another avid Wood River Valley fly-fisher, in what would become Flywater (1994).
An exhibit of Grant McClintock’s images and books can be found at The Community Library outside the Idaho Room.
The Library has many other fly fishing books in the stacks at 799.12 and fly tying at 688.7, including these titles by Grant McClintock:
Flywater: Fly-fishing Rivers of the West (2010)
