Fly Fisher/Author/Fly Tier
Bob Romano and his wife, Trish, have owned a camp in the Rangeley Lakes Region of western Maine for nearly forty years. Many outdoor writers concentrate on the “how-to” aspects of fly-fishing. Bob prefers to examine why we fish while using the rivers, lakes, and streams of Maine’s Great North Woods as his literary canvas.
