I grabbed the very last pre 2010 Pa Gazetteer from a K Mart with some inside info from k-bob (you're the man!). It's a 2001 7th edition, so now I've got the back-up I wanted.

"I'm curious what other people think about the Sportsman's Connection All-Outdoors Atlas & Field Guides. I looked at the one for western PA, and I thought it was pretty bad. Lots of murky, fuzzy stuff. So much so that the small stream lines and small roads and small type were barely legible.

I haven't seen the eastern PA one yet. Maybe that one came out better?"

I have the eastern PA Sportsman's Connection All-Outdoors Atlas & Field Guides. It has the same problem for a small stream fly fisherman: the stream names are poorly printed in fuzzy gray... hard to read. And, these Sportsmen's books use a medium green to display state forest areas, and a darkish green for state game lands. So, one thing I often want from a map - the name of a stream in a SGL - is often impossible to read. Can't read fuzzy gray in dark green.

However, despite the printing problems, I still think the Sportsmens' maps are worth owning because they show special reg and natural reproduction trout streams in dashed color lines. These are often small and out of the way streams, and some don't appear on a delorme. You will often need to use a delorme or gps map to read the name of a stream shown in a color line on the Sportsmens' maps. But the fact that a stream is on the natural reproduction list is vey useful info to me.

Also, some untitled tributaries on the natural repoduction list are drawn in color lines on the Sportsman's Connection maps, and not shown at all some Delormes

For really small steams, it is probably best to carry a delorme, a sportsmen's guide, a Landis, and a gps!

The 11th edition has a similar design as the 10th. Some people think the new design is OK.

I think the ones before edition 10 are much better (editions 9 or earlier).
