Northern New England is known for its many beautiful lakes, rivers, and streams - and for outstanding fly fishing. From Vermont's Battenkill, to the headwaters of the mighty Connecticut in New Hampshire, to the Kennebec and Penobscot Rivers in Maine, David Klausmeyer has investigated the far reaches of northern New England to recommend the very best fly-fishing for trout and landlocked salmon.
With his years of experience as a researcher, writer, and editor for several national fly-fishing magazines, Klausmeyer knows what to look for in a trout stream, where to find the best stretches of water and avoid crowds, and, most importantly, what every angler needs from a good guide. Features of this thoroughly researched book include descriptions o fthe best waters and little-known tributaries worth exploring, and recommendations on local hatches and fly patterns, as well as detailed access directions and listing of local fly shops.
