Item description for Flyfisher's Guide to Pennsylvania (Flyfisher's Guide Series) by Dave Wolf...
Pennsylvania has one of the highest per capita populations of flyfishers in the country, and much of the sport's early history in America came from this wonderful state. In this 525 page guidebook, the ninth in our series of Flyfisher's Guides, veteran angling author Dave Wolf highlights the best flyfishing opportunities throughout the state in great detail with over 90 detailed maps and 60+ hatch charts. Previous guidebooks on Pennsylvania have invariably focused only on trout. In this comprehensive book, Wolf covers all those trouting opportunities in great detail and all the great warmwater flyfishing as well. Rivers like the Susquehanna have long been known among the best smallmouth bass waters in the country, and flyrodders throughout the mid-Atlantic states annually fish this river and many of Pennsylvania's countless rivers and streams for trout, bass, and other species. This is also a true travel guide, as well, covering where to stay, restaurants, fly shops and sporting goods stores and much more.

A Very Good Effort Jun 21, 2006
I've had this book for several years and I've found it to be a very useful resource. The hatch charts are extremely helpful, especially for trout anglers. While the author made a better than average attempt to cover the warmwater opportunities in the Keystone State, for the most part only the most well known sites were covered. Certainly Pennsylvania has some world famous trout streams, but the variety and quality of our warmwater fisheries is truly extraordinary. Some of the streams that were covered specifically for the trout they hold probably offer better bass fishing over most of their length. Trout centered thinking is far too prevalent in the fly fishing community and as a result this sort of overemphasis on trout is typical of many fly fishing guides. Indeed, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is guilty of killing thousands of trout annually by stocking them in waters so warm they are almost certain to all die by Memorial Day. I know that Mr. Wolf is a skilled and avid warmwater fly fisher. I hope in the future he will update this guide and give our warmwater fisheries the coverage they deserve.
flyfisher's Guide to Pennsylvania by Dave Wolf Apr 28, 2002
If you are looking for a book to give you general knowledge on better known trout fishing streams in Pennsylvania, then this book will meet your needs. Unfortunately, the author does not do a good job of covering remote streams in many parts of the state that are excellent producing streams and beautiful places to fish. I was especially disappointed in his lack of coverage of streams in McKean and Warren County. I would not recommend this book to an avid Pennsylvania fisherman. The book is adequate for an out-of-state fisherman who is looking to fish some of the more popular streams in PA.
WOLF PUBLISHES NEW BOOK Apr 21, 2000
"It's a comprehensive and exhaustively researched offering and a fine addition to Wolf's career in helping Pennsylvania anglers better know and respect their home waters. With its detailed maps and hatch charts, it also will help traveling anglers find and fish their way around the Keystone State."
All Kinds of Great Fishing Information Apr 21, 2000
"Over the years, a number of books have been written offering insight to the best places where (fishing) opportunity can be found. However, none is as complete as recently released, Dave Wolf's, Flyfishers Guide to Pennsylvania. This book is complete and provides tidbits of information overlooked in the past, but not in this book. The book can not only serve as a fishing guide, but for travel as well, covering where to stay, restaurants, fly shops and much more."
One of the Best I Have Seen on the Market Apr 21, 2000
"Wolf, although an ardent trout fisherman, includes in this book information for the ever-growing number of anglers that have taken to fishing for cool and warm-water species using buggy-whip techniques. And it doesn't end there. It is a great reference to the special waters of Pennsylvania even for bait and spinning tackle anglers....
