The River Why - Central PA reference

Hey folks,

I found myself without a good book to read last night, so I delved back into my shelves and found my old copy of David James Duncan's The River Why. I first read it in high school (when I started fishing) and am very glad I picked it up again. What a great book. Duncan is a great writer and his other novels are just as good - The Brothers K, God Laughs and Plays, River Teeth, etc. Check them out if you get a chance.

Anyway, to my point - at the very end of the first page, I think he references Central PA!

"...then in the concluding paragraph my father spills the beans all over his little allegory with the forgettable intimation that "Ol' Gus is not some wily brown trout lurking in the waters of a LETORT, Beaverkill, or Firehole."

Nice! Just thought I'd share.
