5 Carmichael, Hoagy B. The Grand Cascapedia River A History: Set of Both Volumes
North Salem Anesha Publishing LLC 2012 0615586279 / 9780615586274 First Edition Hard Cover Fine No Jacket: As Issued 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Inscribed By Author
Two Volumes in slipcases. 2006 & 2012. Each volume nscribed. A very rich source of new info & delightful visual images of the fish, of the anglers, & of the elaborate & not so elaborate camps & lodges that are inextricable strands of the fabric of the great sport of fly fishing. Private photos & paintings. The second and final volume of the award-winning history of The Grand Cascapedia River. In its eleven chapters, Volume II covers the history of the river's eight camps, and the sports who fished out of them, from the mid-1930's through to the present day. Topics covered include the creation of the Cascapedia Society, salmon netting, both Native and commercial, the nagging difficulties of the logging industry and the Riparian Association. It also details the interesting story of how the Cascapedia Club (New Club) almost lost, but retained the river lease, and lastly an Appendix with several astonishing stories. A gallery of photographs at the end of each chapter further bring to life the relevant people, places and events. This volume is more than an account of the bellwether Grand Cascapedia River - it is a book for those interested in the history of Atlantic salmon fishing in Canada. Stories of big fish, big and little people, and the will it took by many to slowly return the river to its historic greatness. Taking up from the mid-1930s where Volume I ended, Volume II covers in detail how the great river almost went back into the hands of the Canadian government during the Great Depression, how it was saved and by whom, and then how the pools were reallocated, much as they are today. The great camps, Tracadie, Middle Camp, and New Derreen, to name a few, are reborn and a New Club is formed. This volume also details in the "River Management" chapter important concerns that imperiled the river; weeks of river-mouth clogging log drives, excessive commercial fishing in the Bay of Chaleur, the rights of the Micmac Natives and their netting at the mouth of the river, and how the river's unique governing body, The Society, was conceived in the face of a hostile government. Net Wt 11.54 lbs

14 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 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
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.
