4 Francis, Austin McK Catskill Rivers: Birthplace of American Fly Fishing
New York The Beaverkill Press 1983 0832902829 / 9780832902826 First Edition Full-Leather As New No Jacket: As Issued Limited Edition 
xiii, 258 pp. Limited edition of 300 copies.In full brown morocco, with gilt titles and five raised headbands on spine, a ribbon marker, AEG, in a matching colored cloth slipcase. The Beaverkill, the Willowemoc, the Neversink, the Delaware, the Esopus, the Schoharie--these hallowed trout streams have been hailed for generations as “the birthplace of American fly fishing.” Here is their story. Painstakingly researched and beautifully told, Catskill Rivers will likely remain the definitive study of these fabled waters and the remarkable people who created the American fly-fishing tradition. There is an unforgettable look at the early river industries--rafting, sawmills,tanneries, wood-acid factories--and at the early days on these classic trout waters, where George LaBranche, in Sparse Grey Hackle’s words, “adapted the dry fly to fast water and started an angling revolution.” Here are the great anglers, fly tyers, rod makers, entomologists, and publicists--“Uncle Thad” Norris, Seth Green, Theodore Gordon, Herman Christian, Roy Steenrod, Rube Cross, Hiram Leonard, Ed Payne, Louis Rhead, Edward R. Hewitt, Sparse Grey Hackle, Preston Jennings, Art Flick, Harry Darbee, Walt Dette, and a host of others. There are revealing discussions of the sociological forces that led Americans into fly fishing; the origins and customs of private stream clubs; the rivalries between owners and poachers; the controversies over imported “German” brown trout; the cult of dry-fly purists; the evolution of hatchery practices, stream improvements, and fisheries regulation; as well as the future prospects for these lovely waters. There are also penetrating historical and physical profiles of the six principal Catskill rivers, their insect life, trout distributions, stocking practices, access, angling pressures, fishing conditions, and successful angling techniques. Catskill Rivers is a poignant journey through the annals of American angling, from its origins to the present, laced with anecdotes and stories, graced with over one hundred ten photographs and nine beautifully illustrated river maps by John Manikowski. It is a book all fishermen will treasure.

279 pp. colophon. In deep blue cloth, with silver lettering, and decorative endpapers that are a map of Catskill region rivers.

It includes all you may have wanted to know about its fly fishing, past and present. Broken into three major sections: Rivers, Tackle, and Heritage. A spectacular book that will be impossible to better. A book written with an immense love of the region apparent in the author's heart.
