Overview

A stunning photographic portrait of the hallowed streams where American fly-fishing had its beginnings. The Beaverkill, Willowemoc, Neversink, Esopus, Schoharie, and Delaware--the rivers of angling pioneers Thaddeus Norris, Robert Barnwell Roosevelt, Theodore Gordon, and many others--are celebrated in this gorgeous book of photographs and text. In three major sections, Land of Little Rivers presents historical and physical profiles of the rivers; classic rods, reels, and flies; and engaging stories of the people, events, and developments that constitute the Catskill fly-fishing tradition. Author Austin McK. Francis, noted angling historian and biographer and acknowledged authority on the history of Catskill fly fishing, has a home in the Catskill Mountains and has fished there for more than thirty-five years. Famed photographer and avid fly fisher Enrico Ferorelli, a regular contributor to National Geographic and Smithsonian magazines, spent five months creating the most evocative portfolio of photos ever made of these historic rivers. Together they have produced an exquisite, museum-quality work, one that captures magnificently the beauty and passion so central to the sport Izaak Walton called "the gentle art."

Editorial Reviews

Sports Illustrated
This is a beautifully illustrated and exhaustively researched tribute to fly-fishing in the catskill mountains of New York by a reowned authority on the subject. In addition to stunning color photographs of the region by Enrico Ferorelli, the book is chock full of old black-and-white images that evoke a bygone era, all of which may well make this hefy volume worth the price.
Library Journal
This is an amazing book. It seems as if every page brings another pastoral landscape, sharp portrait, beautifully drawn map, or exceptional fly photograph. Ferorelli, a photographer for Life and National Geographic, has produced some stunning photographs, and the Catskills and fly fishing seem woven together in his compositions. Although the text could not hope to match the intensity of the photographs and artwork, Francis's prose is easy to read and moves the reader along through descriptions of the major Catskill streams, the tackle and flies originated in the region, and a fine history of the famous Catskill anglers and clubs. The author's previous work, Catskill Rivers: Birthplace of American Fly Fishing (Lyons, 1996), covers much of the same historical ground. Fly fishing has produced a number of beautiful books, but this work exceeds any that this reviewer has seen. Although the topic may sound regional, the book has national appeal for anglers and lovers of photography. Highly recommended.--Jeff Grossman, Milwaukee Area Technical Coll.
