This post is a few words about a book, and the home of my friends.
The book is titled Brook Trout Forest, and is written by Kathy Scott. It is a well written book and tells of bamboo rods,the teaching of children the finer points of trout, salmon and the beauty of the outdoors.
She mentions fishing for brook trout in Maine, and other states, as well as Canada.
If you have the opportunity to read it do so. You will truly enjoy it.
A few words about my wild friends. As the book speaks of the Brook Trout Forest, below are some of the wonderful wild places they inhabit.
Although the brook trout has been pushed back into smaller headwater streams, they take no backseat to beauty. They live with the fern, hemlock, maple, with the tiger lily, the mushroom, salamander, snake, and the countless wild animals who live there alongside the brook trout.
I have pursued the brook trout for years, and never grow tired of him, nor the beauty of the environment he dwells in.

Very nice post. Thanks for the heads-up on the book. I plan to read it.ReplyDelete
You must have a great fishing library. Thanks for sharing the book.ReplyDelete
The beauty of this book is that it's written like a journal, an easy read.
Yes I do have a few books hanging around.
I agree with Savage, your fishing library must be great. I don't know how many books I have put on my wish list because you had good things to say about them.ReplyDelete
Thanks for another good book review , I read almost constantly and it's always hard to find good books it seems. I have to agree that the wild brookie is true testament to the fact that trout don't live in ugly places , that is unless man screws around and changes their habitat.ReplyDelete
I have several books written by Kathy Scott, and all of them are well written.
It's true there are a great deal of fluff fly fishing books out there.
And if man would just help the brookie, by not interfering with its habitat.
I'll have to check out the book, sounds like a great read.ReplyDelete
Fishing for trout takes us to some beautiful places...this post is a perfect example of that.
Sounds like an interesting book. Thanks for the recommendation.ReplyDelete
Very nice post and pictures BRK TRT. This is a new one for me. I'm going to have to try and track one down to read. Seems like something every wild trout fisherman would enjoy.ReplyDelete
From some of your posts I see you have a fondness of glass rods. Although this is about bamboo rods, they both have a special place in fly fishing.
This is her latest book, recently released. So you probably will be able to find it easily.
Thanks fro the great book recommendation. The pics of all the things that surround you while out brook fishing are great. It all mixes together to create perfection. Tight Lines.ReplyDelete
Sometimes we focus so hard on the trout, we overlook the true reasons we are there.
I agree that brook trout are found in beautiful places. Unfortunately, one of those places near me was recently torn up. The tornado that hit MA a few weeks ago wiped out the most shaded part of the forest where a nice brook runs through. There are hundreds of trees laying across the brook now. I'm worried the water will be too warm for the few brookies that manage to survive there. Sorry for the gloomy comment.
Unfortunately, the acts of nature can't be stopped.
That was a terrible storm that stayed on the ground much to long, affecting so many people.
We can only hope the brook trout will be able to find sanctuary somewhere.
BRK TRT....Thanks.Great post. WWReplyDelete
