152 pp "Fifty years is a long time to cast a fly, or so it seems until you have crossed that river." Thus begin Roger Menard's evocative and poetic reflections on a lifetime spent fishing for trout on Catskill Mountain rivers, the "bedrock of American fly fishing-legendary waters fished by legendary figures in the history of the sport. Sprinkled liberally with tips on everything from restoring an antique bamboo cane rod to finding just the right feathers for tying flies, My Side of the River offers advice on outwitting the wary and elusive trout that beginners will find invaluable and seasoned fly fishers will want to compare notes with. It is also a meditation on a sport and a region, a song of praise to the natural wonders of the Catskills, an angling Mecca where brook trout hide in "medicine places," and where "hatfish" and "blueberry trout" can reward the patient fisher. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: The Catskill Mountains are the birthplace of flyfishing in America and author Menard has spent a lifetime fishing for trout on the rivers and streams of the mountains. (It was here in the 1800s that Theodore Gordon developed dry flies suitable for the fast flowing Catskill rivers.) Sprinkled liberally with tips on everything from refinishing an old cane rod to finding just the right feathers for tying flies, this great book offers advice on outwitting the wary and elusive trout.
About the Author: Roger Menard was a charter director of the Theodore Gordon Flyfishers and is a member of the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild, and Trout Unlimited and was instrumental in obtaining "artificial lure-only" regulations on the Amawalk River.
