I guess I'm like a kid with fishing sometimes. But, I finally got my new 1993 edition of The Vanishing Trout (Lose), and I'm psyched! For a long while I've been telling myself that I have to read that book. I even paid extra for 2 day delivery. Yea, that's the kid in me.

I meant to put this in the Readers Corner.

Enjoy the read. I hope you don't object to me editing your title. Though there is no required title format here, since I had to move this for you, I thought I would amend the title line to reflect the book you were writing about. Seems like a good deal to put that in the title.

The Vanishing Trout is a wonderful look back at n/c PA. I'm about due to re-read it, though I envy you your first time through it. It is a fishing book about fishing, unlike many of the modern so-called fishing books that are filled with personal angst. I really hope you enjoy reading it.

I've been wanting to read this book for quite a while now also
But the prices I've been seeing for it are riduculous
I'll have to see if our library has it

Dryflyguy, I think you can order "The Vanishing Trout" from "Flyfishers" fly shop in State College. That's where I got my copy. If I remember it was about $20. Give them a call. They should have at least one or two copies on hand. Good luck.

Thanks Tiger

The last I knew, that book was long out of print.
And listed for like $100 to $200 on e-bay.
If I don't find it at the library, I'll checkout FFP

dryflyguy, I checked FFP 2010 catalog yesterday to see if they still listed "The Vanishing Trout". I'm sorry to say they do not. Good luck in your search it's an excellent read. I guess I better get my copy into a safe deposit box at a bank LOL.

DFG- they have it at the Carnegie Library in Oakland but you can not take the book out. Bet I have checked out 50 flyfishing books from there. Good luck.

The book is still around and at normal prices. You can find them at:

Ottos Bookstore, Williamsport. 570-326-5764

I just talked to them on the phone and they have 4 copies left. At $19.95 per copy. These are new copies of the 1990s reprint, a hardbound edition with a red cover.

Ottos has a large section of books about PA history etc.
