Fly Fishing in Connecticut

A Guide for Beginners

In this book, a long-time resident and devoted fly fisherman imparts a wealth of knowledge about fly fishing in Connecticut. Kevin Murphy teaches novice anglers about the state’s trout hatcheries and stocking programs, the differences between brook, brown, and rainbow trout, and offers easy-to-follow instructions on the basics of fly fishing. In this concise text, the reader finds the essentials in fly fishing gear, stream tactics, casting, and a host of related topics. In addition, would-be anglers gain a useful glimpse into the history of fishing in the state, plus important tips on stream conservation, fly fishing etiquette, regulations, and safety. Most importantly, anglers will find a veritable road map to Connecticut’s best trout streams and rivers. The book even offers excellent suggestions for comfortable lodging in prime fly fishing locations and—once the day’s fishing is done—a few mouth-watering recipes for cooking one’s catch. Whether you’re in the market for that first pair of waders, thinking of tuning up your casting technique, or just want to know where the fish are biting, this is the book to read.

Endorsements

"I've often waded into the ancient streams of Connecticut on a pristine summer or autumn day and thought, 'This is trout heaven with a New England accent.' Fly Fishing in Connecticut is the next best thing to landing a tiny mayfly on a promising riffle on one of the many promising streams of the Nutmeg State."—Tom Brokaw

"Anyone fly fishing in Connecticut will profit by reading this book. It lists, in incredible detail, known and little known fishing places. Better still, there is a schedule of when to fish or avoid fishing certain streams and lakes. Murphy gives practical information about tackle and tactics. It's a complete job."—Lefty Kreh, fly fishing guide, author, and America's best-loved casting instructor

"I don't know how many fly fishing books have come and gone over the better than 70 years since I picked up my first fishing rod, but this one is genuinely special. The wide variety of information just keeps coming. It centers around Connecticut, but will be helpful to fly fishing folks just about anywhere. If there is a book on this topic that contains more interesting and useful information on such a wide variety of subjects, from aquatic biology to fishing technics, I haven't seen it."—Duane Raver, nationally known fish artist and former editor of Wildlife in North Carolina
