A Chicago-born architect, Ernest Schwiebert (1931-2005) had a passion for fly fishing beginning as a child spending vacations in Michigan. Despite working full time as an architect, Schwiebert found time to fish and write about it. He was a prolific writer, and wrote several books on fly fishing. Schwiebert was also a great conservationist, and was active in several groups, including Trout Unlimited, Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, Federation of Fly Fishers, Atlantic Salmon Federation and the Nature Conservancy. Schwiebert’s understanding of stream entomology and fly fishing techniques made his books valuable to anglers of his generation and beyond.
