  • The Eastern United States is wrought with tailwater fisheries that can produce monster trout, but anglers need the wheres, whens and hows in order to capitalize. In the newest Flyfisher's Guide, Tom Gilmore gives you everything you need to know to hook into the East's trophy tailwater trout. Other guidebooks have inconsistent writing and photography, with vague maps. Gilmore gives you everything you need to know, along with spectacular full-color photography. Regulations, seasons, fish, river characteristics, expert insights, recommended gear, hub-city information, history, and complete directions are listed for every river. Gilmore also details what makes a tailwater a tailwater, and offers specific advice on how to approach them. Fish, flies and hatches are broken down, along with tips on how to read the water, flow and release schedules, seasonal variations, appropriate gear and more. This book keeps up Wilderness Adventures Press' tradition of producing superior maps with GPS coordinates for all access points, boat ramps, campgrounds and more. The Upper Connecticut, Deerfield, Housatonic, Delaware, Gunpowder, Jackson, South Holston, Watauga, Tuckasegee, Chattahoochee and many more rivers are covered in full detail. Authors Ed Jaworowski's and Beau Beasley's endorsements validate this offering as the authoritative guide on fishing eastern tailwaters. Start catching more and bigger fish with this guidebook from Wilderness Adventures Press.
