Greg Thomas reviews men’s fly-fishing for Outside’s Buyer’s Guide. He treasures native fish above all others. He fishes on homewaters in Montana and Yellowstone, but escapes to faraway lands as often as possible—to British Columbia’s Dean River for giant chinook; to Alaska for leopard rainbows and king salmon; to Haida Gwaii for wild steelhead; to Quebec’s Gaspe and Russia’s Kola peninsulas for Atlantic salmon; to the Florida Keys for tarpon and the Bahamas for bones; to Belize for permit; and many other locales.
