By Lou Zambello
Much has been written about the most famous American flyfisheries, but relatively little has been logged regarding the glorious brook-trout and landlocked salmon water of northern New England. Thanks to long-time fishing guide Lou Zambello, we'll soon be enlightened.
Covering Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and western Massachusetts, Zambello relates years of flyfishing and guiding experience through observations, instructions and anecdotes. From ice-out through summer, fall and back to winter, all conditions and strategies are covered. You'll learn the best time to dead-drift a streamer versus twitching dry flies, and much more. He relates stories from such famous waters as the Kennebec, Penobscot, Grand Lake Stream, Rapid, Presumpscot, Androscoggin, and Deerfield Rivers, and Rangeley, Moosehead and Sebago Lakes, and many more throughout the region. Even if you're an experience northern New England angler, you'll find many useful morsels of information throughout this guide. And certainly if you're a rookie, you'll want this book.
