Trout Streams of Southern New England: An Angler s Guide to the Watersheds of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island (Trout Streams)
Trout Streams of Southern New England: An Angler's Guide to the Watersheds of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island (Trout Streams)
by Tom Fuller
Paperback from Countryman Press
ISBN: 088150470X

A complete new guide--the first of its kind--to the best fly-fishing in the streams, lakes, and ponds of southern New England.
Within the confines of southern New England there are more trout streams, rivers, lakes, and ponds than any one angler can fully appreciate in a lifetime. The variety of waters in itself is quite astonishing, as is their fertility and ability to sustain trout year-round. This variety and fertility belies the conventional wisdom--namely, that southern New England contains only marginal trout waters, and that they are overcrowded and overfished. It is, in fact, a fly-fisher's delight, with well-protected watersheds, stocked rivers, and stretches of pristine, wild streams. No matter where you stand in southern New England, Tom Fuller can guarantee that you are within 15 miles of one of the exceptional trout waters described in his new book. He guides anglers to every recommended trout water--over 130 streams and rivers in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island--making this the most comprehensive guide available. In addition, you'll find thorough, expertly researched access directions and up-to-date information on regulations and stream conditions. Nineteen maps detail the major rivers; and Fuller also gives advice on patterns to match the hatches and a chart showing insect emergence dates. The only trout-fishing guide to this region, it covers 19 major watersheds with over 130 waters described.

Fly Fishing Boston: A Complete Saltwater Guide from Rhode Island to Maine (Backcountry Guides)
by Terry Tessein
Paperback from Countryman Press
ISBN: 088150517X

Where and how to fly fish within two or three hours of downtown Boston.
Terry Tessein, a veteran of a lifetime of fishing the New England coastline, shares those years of experience in the first detailed guidebook to the multitude of fly fishing possibilities within easy reach of downtown Boston. From the shores of Rhode Island to the coastline of southern Maine, Tessein will guide the reader on where to go, when to go to find particular species, and what flies and tactics to use at each venue.
Fly Fishing Boston covers both well known areas like the Joppa Flats of Newburyport, as well as the relatively unknown and underfished areas along this stretch. In addition, Tessein explains such important coastal fishing information as tides and how they affect the movement of fish. Finally, Fly Fishing Boston is detailed enough to provide even regional fly patterns unique to specific zones. It will be a book to both read in the off-season and to pack in the tackle bag when heading out for a day of fishing. 30 black-and-white photographs, 6 maps, index

From stripers to sharks and everything in between, this is the must-read guide for fishing the coast, from Rhode Island to Main.
 
Down to the Sea: The Fishing Schooners of Gloucester
Down to the Sea: The Fishing Schooners of Gloucester
by Joseph E. Garland
Paperback from David R Godine
ISBN: 1567921418

No vessel in American history paid off more handsomely or at a more terrible cost than the Gloucester fishing schooner. These were the fastest, leanest, and most challenging working boats ever built. They carried enormous canvas, were designed with the fine lines and long overhangs of racing yachts, but were expected to race off to the Grand Banks and back, their holds crammed with fish. The schooners were built for speed, not safety, and if their payout was large, so was the loss of life: a staggering 668 schooners and 3,755 Gloucestermen went to the cruel depths in the 68 years between 1830 and 1897 alone.
Down to the Sea is an illustrated chronicle of these everlastingly romantic vessels and of the intrepid captains and crews who worked them from the early eighteenth until well into the first quarter of this century. It is the tale of men, a town, and an industry that swiftly became the stuff of American legend.
Here, too, are previously unpublished masterpieces of marine photography, many from the Cape Ann Historical Association s important collection, which provide a visual record of both shocking hardship and sheer physical beauty. Gloucester, her boats and her crews are much in the news these days. In this glorious book we see that the legacy, legends, and tragedies that have always been integral to this brave harbor are nothing new; only the names have changed.
