Summary

Summary

Many of the 10,000 miles of classified trout water in the state is easily accessible from major population centers. But this massive, complete work also includes smaller "secret" streams in remote regions. This third edition has been completely redesigned, as well as updated and expanded. Fourteen streams have been added. Features include: extensive insect hatch charts keyed to each stream; advice on matching the batch with the right flies; local fly patterns; color photographs and detailed maps; at-a-glance headings for each stream that tell you how to get there, what to bring, regulations, and highlights.


Author Notes

Charles R. Meck, a lifelong Pennsylvania resident and the author of six other successful books on fly-fishing, has fished virtually every trout stream in the state. His works include Arizona Trout Streams and Their Hatches, Mid-Atlantic Trout Streams and Their Hatches, Fishing Small Streams with a Fly Rod, and Meeting and Fishing the Hatches. He lives in Pennsylvania Furnace, Pennsylvania and spends his winters in Mesa, Arizona.
