"Lyman Rock"

Listed in this book are the major pools and runs of the Farmington River. I have chosen to tie streamers for most of them, especially the ones I have, and continue to fish. In time when a whole lot of ambition flows my direction I'll assemble and frame them. While I fish streamers in the "Farmy" and have taken some memorable fish with them I made need the help of a few anglers who fish the "Farmy" on a regular basis to help test these streamers.

Well here go's to ambition and streamers.

"Lyman Rock"


This is a pool in the upper region of the Farmington River. It is where the Still River joins the West Branch. Deep swirling waters occur here and it's a great location for a streamer.

      Your right Pete. The shop building is still there. I think everyone who fished the Farmington in the sixties early seventies will remember.
