Default This book any good?

I am looking for a general introductory type book about fly fishing for steelhead in a Great lakes area. Have any of you read:

Great Lakes Steelhead: A Guided Tour for Fly-Anglers by Bob Linsenman, Steve Nevala, Carl Richards

Any good? Any of book recomendations?

Red Owl,
I've seen the book you mentioned and it's not bad..I would recommend the Steelhead Guide by John Nagy; it's specific to Lake Erie but has lots of useful information on flyfishing for steelhead.

I have both and they both are good books. John's book is probably the best I have read and Dan is right - it is Lake Erie specific but I think the knowledge applies throughout the Great Lakes...
