Default The Holy Trinity Of Canuck Fly Fishing????? The Three Ians (Not A New Music Group)

We are very fortunate in Ontario and even Canada to have great writers/fly fishers. These for me include three guys who happen to share the same first name (IAN -- what the hell is there in that name any way?!?!?) and live within casting distance (or at least pretty close to) to the Grand (must be something in the water?!?!?). Ian Martin has written the definitive work on the Grand River plus recently wrote a series for The Canadian Fly Fisher called the "Seasons of the Grand". Ian Scott has a great website/blog called "All About Fly Fishing". Funny and informative as well. Finally there is Ian Colin James, fly fisher/tyer supreme in eveything from carp to trout. His "Fumbling With A Flyrod" is a must read. Great website/blog too. So if you're not yet familiar with any of these great Ians, then make sure you check them out.

"Fly fishing is solitary, contemplative, misanthropic, scientific in some hands, poetic in others, and laced with aesthetic considerations. It's not even clear if catching fish is actually the point." -John Gierach
