He records the attempts to restore the depleted fishery by restocking streams with hatchery-bred trout, and then the introduction of rainbow trout from California and brown trout from Europe, and their impact upon Catskill trout fishing. Throughout, this is a history of people and methods as well as rivers, and there are profiles of Theodore Gordon, Art Flick, Harry and Elsie Darbee, Sparse Grey Hackle, and more. No serious trout fisherman, in any part of the country, will want to miss this pioneering portrait of a seminal region in American angling history." If you think that this is just another Catskill book, you're mistaken. The quote from Nick Lyons on the front flap say it all: No one knows trout fishing in the Catskills as well as Ed Van Put.... both its present day angling possibilities and its fascinating history.
