Editor Justin Askins compiles more than 20 essays about the Neversink River in New York's Catskill Mountains, from such noted fly-fishing writers as John Burroughs, Hay Berman, and Jay Cassell, in this wide-ranging anthology. Larry Wayne performs with a studious grace, giving these indelible portraits of the Neversink an impressed reverence. The Legendary Neversink is not just a collection of great fishing tales, however; it details the history of the river, including a discussion about the political controversy surrounding the region, making this a well-rounded document of a fisherman's paradise.
The Neversink River in New York’s Catskill Mountains, with its plunges and gorges, is one of the world’s great trout streams. This treasury from the finest fly-fishing writers takes a revelatory look at the river from its earliest days right up to the present, and from its origins high on Slide Mountain to the wild and deep ledge pools where the biggest fish live.
