ROCK HILL, S.C. Oct. 30, 2009 — Jim Casada, one of America’s premier outdoor writers, who has fly fished the storied trout streams of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park since age 9, has captured this life-long experience and love of the park in his latest book, Fly Fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park — An Insider’s Guide to a Pursuit of Passion.

Casada, who has waded the hundreds of miles of wild trout water in the nation’s most-visited national park, said he wrote the book to help celebrate the Park’s 75th Anniversary and considers it to be his masterpiece. Jim Casada is a widely published author whose work has appeared in virtually all the major national and regional outdoor magazines. He has written more than 4,000 magazine features as well as having written or edited more than 40 books. Fly fishing for trout has been a significant focus of his work, which includes two previous books in the field, the award-winning Modern Fly Fishing and Beginner’s Guide to Fly Fishing, along with articles for magazines such as Trout, Eastern Fly Fishing, Fly Fisherman, North American Fisherman, Salmon-Trout-Steelhead, and many others.

Past president of the Outdoor Writers Association of America and the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association, Casada is the recipient of more that 150 regional or national awards for his writing and photography, and was honored by the Federation of Fly Fishermen with a Lifetime Membership and its Arnold Gingrich Memorial Award for contributions to the literature of fly fishing, and has been recognized by the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association with its most prestigious service award. He has taught fly fishing in the University of Tennessee’s Smoky Mountain Field School for more than 20 years and has led dozens of angling trips to Montana, Wyoming, and other destinations.

Fly Fishing in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park: An Insider’s Guide to a Pursuit of Passion, is available in both paperbound and hardback formats. The 448-page book contains 52 chapters covering every major Park stream as well as equipment, tactics and techniques, safety issues, “Seasons of the Smokies,” recipes for trout, and an extensive annotated bibliography.
