xxi, , 215 pp.The Neversink River in New York’s Catskill Mountains, with its plunges and gorges, is one of the world’s great trout streams. So it’s no surprise that this diverse and fecund waterway has compelled the finest fly-fishing writers to take up their pens. This treasury of their best work 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. It includes pieces by John Burroughs, Theodore Gordon, Edward Ringwood Hewitt, George M. L. LaBranche, Hay Berman, Ernest Schwiebert, Austin M. Francis, A. J. McClane, Len Wright, and Jay Cassell.
