Eric Peper grew up fly fishing the Beaverkill and learned its ways from some of the Catskills' greatest anglers, including Walt Dette, Harry Darbee, Al McClane, and Sparse Grey Hackle. FLY FISHING THE BEAVERKILL distills his vast experience into a concise, authoritative package. Peper addresses where to find the trout, what flies to use, how the seasons affect the angling, and how to avoid the crowds on this popular upstate New York river. Fly-fishing guru Gary LaFontaine went along on this foray into classic American trout fishing, using his own experience on the Beaverkill and his extensive knowledge of fly fishing to help elicit the essence of the Beaverkill experience.Included are a hatch chart of important insects, a list of popular flies for the river, recipes for several essential flies, and what Peper calls "adaptive behavior for the Beaverkill"--how to enjoy the experience. There are scenic yet helpful, black-and-white photos throughout. Anyone thinking of fishing the Beaverkill must take this essential guide along.
