Well I'm a little over halfway through this book, guess I'm taking my time and savoring it. So far my favorite chapters have been A Week On Middle Creek and A Week at Long Cabin With Johnnie. Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong time period, I'd love to go back and experience the PA mountains when they were still unspoiled.


His descriptions capture the look and feel of Penns Woods better than anything I've ever read. Not just the way things were then, but the way things still are now in the forested areas of PA.

Are you forgetting all the gas wells that dot the landscape now?

this is a landmark book, I may have fly fish trip on this kind of treatise, just for the no record.

Had to bring back this thread.

Finally found this book at a flea market in perfect condition. Can't believe they only wanted 6 bucks for it.
Score!

Can't wait to read it

There is a copy of the 1990s reprint available on Ebay for $40.

And a copy of the 1931 first edition available on Amazon for $75.

Both of these prices are reasonable for this book.

Sal did better at the flea market! But I'm not sure how often you're likely to find a copy that way.
