Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum
1031 Old Route 17
Whether you're a seasoned angler or a newbie, lived in the area forever or just a weekend warrior, you'll get more than your money's worth out of Trout Fishing in the Catskills by Ed Van Put. From the history of the fish and the rivers, to the people who made the Catskills one of the best fisheries in the world, Ed weaves history and "how to" that makes this the seminal book for any angler in the area.
Pick up a copy of the book ($60) at the CFFCM and, while you're there, say hello to Agnes Van Put, one of the original Catskill legends, now 102 years old, and make sure you join the museum membership (just $35/year). If you're lucky, Agnes may have some of her famous jam for sale too.
