Local fly-fishing classic
gets an update

Thanks in part to floods and pesky acquaintances, anglers on the North Yuba River will soon have another chance to read the fly-fishing wisdom of Ed Klingelhofer, who has fished the river for 35 years.

The retired California State University, Sacramento psychology professor has printed an addendum to his Fly-Fishing California's North Yuba River, an underground classic among locals. It's being sold with a reprint of the original, of which just 1,500 were originally available in 1993.

"It has tips that have worked for me, and information on how to access the river. It's the only book I know of that has that kind of information about the North Yuba River," Klingelhofer says. "And I have to admit, I enjoyed the research."

The book and addendum are packed with illustrations by one of Klingelhofer's longtime fishing buddies, Robert Else, a prominent Sacramento artist and retired CSUS professor.

Klingelhofer says the update was needed because of changes since the first book was published, the most important being the floods of 1997, which greatly altered the streams. The limited printing of the original book only intensified demand for a new edition, with the clincher coming from a request by a woman whose friend wouldn't let her use his tattered copy.

Just as when it was first published, all profits will be donated. The first edition profits bolstered a scholarship in Doug Michell's name at CSUS, and profits from this printing will go to the Sierra County Arts Council. If all the books sell, that could be as much as $10,000.

Klingelhofer has printed 1,500 sets of the original book and addendum. They're $15 at select local businesses in Downieville, Nevada City and Grass Valley, as well as the CSUS Hornet Bookstore and two Sacramento fly-fishing shops-American Fly Fishing and Kiene's Fly Shop. For those who already own the original, the addendums are available separately from the author.
