Ed Van Put begins this important new book with the history of native brook trout and offers little-known details about their sizes, abundance, and demise from over-fishing, the growth of streamside industries, and the introduction of competitive species. He records the attempts to restore the depleted fishery by restocking streams with hatchery-bred trout, and then the introduction of rainbow trout from California and brown trout from Europe, and their impact upon Catskill trout fishing. Throughout, this is a history of people and methods as well as rivers, and there are profiles of Theodore Gordon, Art Flick, Harry and Elsie Darbee, Sparse Grey Hackle, and more. No serious trout fisherman, in any part of the country, will want to miss this pioneering portrait of a seminal region in American angling history.

Review:

"Ed Van Put has long been one of fly fishing's most highly regarded historians. He now adds his monumental Trout Fishing in the Catskills to his 1996/2016 The Beaverkill as a major contribution to American angling history. Throughout his long career as a fisheries professional, renowned angler, and writer, Van Put has been legendary for meticulous dedication to craft. Trout Fishing in the Catskills lives up to Van Put's ambitions and his reputation. This is a beautifully written, impeccably researched book."

-Chris Camuto, Gray's Sporting Journal

"A copy of Trout Fishing in the Catskills arrived this afternoon, and so far it has wrecked my day. I can get nothing done in the way of chores, most business, dinner, etc. because my nose is buried in this seminal masterwork, a milestone in angling history and literature."

-Robert H. Boyle, author and conservationist

"Ed Van Put's Trout Fishing in the Catskills is an extremely valuable work produced from amazingly detailed research. Hundreds of personalities - as well as pioneers and legends - are covered by Van Put, with considerable detail gleaned from the newspapers about fly-fishing luminaries who spent considerable time in the Catskills. The book devotes considerable attention to the significant changes that have occurred in the region, especially those that affected the fishery and the area's ecology, starting with numerous tanneries established in the early nineteenth century, to declining stocks of fish (brook trout) later in that century, then recoveries attributed to controlled access (largely by private clubs and preserves) and the introduction of the brown trout."

-Gerald Karaska, American Museum of Fly Fishing

"Van Put has expanded upon his previously acclaimed book The Beaverkill and brought to us this comprehensive history of a region, a tradition, and an age", as Voelker says in The Testament, that "men are going along for the last time." This panoptic chronology covers nearly two centuries of failure and success, tragedy and triumph in the cradle of American fly fishing. It is an essential reference for any and all who fish the Catskills or hold the lore and legends of fishing with a fly as pearls of great price."

-J.C. Aker, Goodreads

“No one knows trout fishing in the Catskills as well as Ed Van Put – both its present day angling possibilities and its fascinating history.”—Nick Lyons
