About the Authors
Authors Les and Kimball Beery have fished the shores of Southwest Florida for over 40 years. This book includes the same tips you would expect from a professional guide.
Les grew up in Orlando, Florida and fished fresh and salt water as often as possible. He was lucky to spend his teenaged summers in Estes Park, Colorado, walking every day to some stream or lake to pursue this fishing obsession. At the age of 12 he was guiding visitors to Estes Park on area streams and lakes. The guided trip was free, but if you caught your guaranteed limit [catch and release was not popular back then] a tip would be appreciated.
Kimball grew up in Boulder, Colorado and started fishing at a very young age at the Kid’s Pond. During high school and college she would ride her ten speed bicycle up Boulder Canyon to fish those waters.
Les graduated from Western State College in Gunnison, Colorado with a bachelor of science having pursued studies in Biology, Geology and Chemistry. He did his graduate studies in Environmental Field Biology at Western State. This helped him understand the complex relationships that tie the components of our environment together. Only an understanding of the interaction of biological, geological, chemical, climatic and social factors can lead to meaningful conservation.
Kimball attended the University of Colorado on an art scholarship and later studied at Western State College. It is her artwork in these books that depicts the riggings and knots.
