Default Barry Mitchell's Alberta's trout highway

I came across a copy of it in a thrift store this morning and picked it up as someone on this forum might like to have it, it's a great book. I got a copy already so just let me know if anyone is interested. 5$.

Great book.

I've read mine so much over and over, it's falling apart.

Hi chucky. I will probably not be down that way for a while. Can I email you some money and then mail it to me once you have received it?
I would love to have that book!
Thanks
Jason

Anybody know if Barry Mitchell's Alberta's trout highway is still in print?
Amazon price is ridiculous!

I see some reasonable priced used copies on Amazon now....

Default Out of print

I heard back in the fall to sell off all the copies on the shelf and that would be it as they were not going to printing it any longer. That was pretty official so unless they changed their mind I would grab one while you can.

Trout Highway is out of print and yes the price has sky rocketed.
Fishing Hole has no copies left.
I've seen the price of this book as high as $199. I picked up a couple of copies for the Northern Lights Fly Fishers and they were $63.00 ea. That was the cheapest I could find.

Was mistaken on the saying that I had copies of the Trout Hiway. What I have are the guides which have been referred to as the information Hiway, I apologize for the confusion

Thanks for suggesting Bass Pro. They did not have it in today, but do get it in on a regular basis. They said the price has been climbing recently and currently sells for $40.
