49 Trout Streams of New Mexico

Raymond Shewnack
William Frangos

Ray Shewnack and Bill Frangos have enjoyed New Mexico's trout streams for years. In 49 Trout Streams of New Mexico, they share their experiences with the state's streams and rivers that are both beautiful and accessible.

The almost two hundred color photos capture the allure of each locale and close-up shots of the flies used. The text captures a slice of time in Shewnack's and Frangos's fly-fishing history, providing relaxing moments for the armchair angler. Using the maps, travelers are guided to all of the forty-nine streams included here.


Raymond C. Shewnack is the retired CEO of Wright Edge Advertising in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has been fishing the streams and rivers of New Mexico for over fifty years.

William J. Frangos, a wildlife artist, photographer, and writer, admits to a fly-fishing addiction.


" 49 Trout Streams of New Mexico ... manages to recreate the bliss of summer fly-fishing in a mix of photos and text."


The Durango Herald, CO

"The best endorsement of 49 Trout Streams of New Mexico is a simple truth: I picked up the book. I thumbed through the glossy pages. I went fishing the next morning...It is a siren who tugs on a fisherman's soul with 49 reasons to fish."


Albuquerque Tribune

" illustrate the state like a coffee-table book, but close-up shots of local flies, small inset river maps, and tips on the best hatches and places to fish make it as valuable as a guide book."


Fly Fisherman Magazine

"Whether you read this handy book to relax, to dream, or to plan the next outing, it provides a practical introduction to each river's unique attractions."
