1 Menard, Roger P.; Taft, David (editor) My Side of the River : Reflections of a Catskill Fly Fisherman
Hensonville, NY Black Dome Press, Corporation 2002 188378932X / 9781883789329 First Edition, First Printing Trade Paperback New No Jacket 
152 pp "Fifty years is a long time to cast a fly, or so it seems until you have crossed that river." Thus begin Roger Menard's evocative and poetic reflections on a lifetime spent fishing for trout on Catskill Mountain rivers, the "bedrock of American fly fishing-legendary waters fished by legendary figures in the history of the sport. Sprinkled liberally with tips on everything from restoring an antique bamboo cane rod to finding just the right feathers for tying flies, My Side of the River offers advice on outwitting the wary and elusive trout that beginners will find invaluable and seasoned fly fishers will want to compare notes with. It is also a meditation on a sport and a region, a song of praise to the natural wonders of the Catskills, an angling Mecca where brook trout hide in "medicine places," and where "hatfish" and "blueberry trout" can reward the patient fisher.
