Trout Fishing in the Catskills | [Ed Van Put]

Trout Fishing in the Catskills

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.

Audible Editor Reviews

Renowned angling writer, fishery expert, and conservationist Ed Van Put's obsessively researched masterwork compiles nearly two centuries of Catskill Mountains history through the lens of fly fishing. Van Put follows New York's rivers from the sport's inception through the invention and exploration of legends like Theodore Gordon and Thaddeus Norris, to the plunder of tourism and industry and the inevitable movement to save the trout and their waters.

Richard Allen's warm, anecdotal tone enlivens this informative bible of Catskills trout fishing to match Van Put's clear passion for his life's work. An essential listen for anyone with interest in the land, the lore, or the sport.

Publisher's Summary

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.
