Description

This is an intimate portrait of fly fishing on Cape Cod's Quashnet and Mashpee rivers, seeking the unique species of Sea Run Brook Trout that once inhabited many waterways and is now limited largely to these two rivers. In 50 colour photographs, watercolour illustrations, and engaging text, discover a unique blend of personal experience and fly fishing romance, mixed with practical how-to instruction, and historical, environmental, and ecological issues. The author details the rare circumstances that allow this vastly diminished species to survive on Cape Cod's peninsula. Explore the Quashnet and Mashpee in all four seasons and throughout history, from the early Wampanoag net fishers through President Grover Cleveland, who fished these waters with his friends, and to the present day. Of course, also discover the personal gear, rod, reel, line, approach, tactics, hatches, traditional patterns, and special favourite patterns that make fly fishing a joy, from one who knows. Anyone who appreciates the great outdoors, from fly fishers to conservationists, will appreciate this book.
