About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. AbeBooks has millions of books. We've listed similar copies below.

Description:

279 pp. colophon. In deep blue cloth, with silver lettering, and decorative endpapers that are a map of Catskill region rivers. I found it hard to believe that in one book you could capture the entire angler's point of view with a between the covers visit to the region, but this book does it, and gets it right. It includes all you may have wanted to know about its fly fishing, past and present. Broken into three major sections: Rivers, Tackle, and Heritage. A spectacular book that will be impossible to better. A book written with an immense love of the region apparent in the author's heart. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 130481

About this title:

Synopsis: The Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Neversink, Esopus, Schoharie, and Delaware-the rivers of angling pioneers Thaddeus Norris, Robert Barnwell Roosevelt, Theodore Gordon, and many others-are celebrated in this gorgeous book of photographs and text. In three major sections, Land of Little Rivers presents historical and physical profiles of the rivers; classic rods, reels, and flies; and engaging stories of the people, events, and developments that constitute the Catskill fly-fishing tradition.

Author Austin McK. Francis, noted angling historian and biographer and acknowledged authority on the history of Catskill fly fishing, has a home in the Catskill Mountains and has fished there for more than thirty-five years. Famed photographer and avid fly fisher Enrico Ferorelli, a regular contributor to National Geographic and Smithsonian magazines, spent five months creating the most evocative portfolio of photos ever made of these historic rivers. Together they have produced an exquisite, museum-quality work, one that captures magnificently the beauty and passion so central to the sport Izaak Walton called "the gentle art."

About the Author: is a fly-fishing historian and a business communications consultant. He has written or edited four previous books on fly fishing. He and his wife, Ross, live in New York City and fly fish in the Catskill Mountains, where they have a home in the Beaverkill valley.
