Welcome to Headwater Books, a publishing company specializing in fly fishing and fly tying books written by experts. Our authors are leaders in their fields and passionate about sharing their knowledge and experience with readers. Our staff is dedicated to creating quality books that capture the essence of our sport.

In 2007 Jay Nichols (who was previously managing editor of Fly Fisherman magazine for six years) started Headwater Books with these two goals in mind:
• Meet readers’ increasing demands for detailed and reliable fly fishing and fly tying information
• Provide unparalleled service and support to authors throughout the publishing process.
Through a partnership with Stackpole Books, a respected name in fly fishing and outdoor sports books, Headwater Books provides the distribution and marketing of a large company, with the service of a small one.
