The second in a new Stackpole Books series featuring 50 important flies from a particular region, tied by anglers with close ties and local knowledge of the place.

Pennsylvania has 86,000 miles of rivers and streams, including freestone streams, tailwaters, and spring creeks, flowing through 46,000 square miles of the diverse country ranging from mountainous terrain to farmland. This volume, by Pennsylvania angling expert Eric Naguski, showcases flies that work well on the diverse waters there and pays tribute to the region he knows so well. Though not a tying manual, each fly is featured in a spread that includes a large, easy-to-see image, recipe and tying notes.

From the Introduction

Pennsylvania is a cornucopia of possibilities for the fly angler. With nearly 5,000 miles of streams stocked with trout and 16,334 miles of streams that support wild trout, it’s no wonder that there is some outstanding fly fishing for trout to be had in the Keystone State. There are freestone systems of all sizes. From tiny headwater streams supporting wild populations of Pennsylvania’s state fish, the brook trout, to the placid limestone spring creeks of the Cumberland Valley, to sprawling tailwater fisheries like the Upper Delaware river system, the fly angler living or visiting Pennsylvania has a profusion of options that will satisfy any angler’s preference for water type, angling technique, and trout species.
