The Neversink River in New York’s Catskill Mountains, with its plunges and gorges, is one of the world’s great trout streams. So it’s no surprise that this diverse and fecund waterway has compelled the finest fly-fishing writers to take up their pens. This treasury of their best work takes a revelatory look at the river from its earliest days right up to the present, and from its origins high on Slide Mountain to the wild and deep ledge pools where the biggest fish live. It includes pieces by John Burroughs, Theodore Gordon, Edward Ringwood Hewitt, George M. L. LaBranche, Hay Berman, Ernest Schwiebert, Austin M. Francis, A. J. McClane, Len Wright, and Jay Cassell. Every fisheman will want to catch” this collection!
Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
