Fishing Virginia: An Angler's Guide to More Than 140 Fishing Spots

by

Fishing Virginia: An Angler's Guide to More Than 140 Fishing Spots Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The fishing in Virginia is as diverse as the states terrain. From 600-pound tuna in its offshore waters and delicious flounder in the Chesapeake Bay to oversize bucket mouths in the piedmont lakes and 8-inch brook trout in the bubbling mountain streams, the Old Dominion State offers something for every angler. Fishing Virginia describes all the best waters from the mountains to the coast, so anglers will know exactly when and where to fish, how to get there, and what kind of gear to use.
 
The authors share their intimate knowledge of 140 top fly-fishing and bait-fishing spots throughout Virginia, including in-depth site descriptions, the species present, and the best times to fish; tips on lures, flies, bait, and tackle; and information about access, availability of campgrounds, and regulations. Detailed site maps and sections dedicated to trout fishing and urban fishing holes round out this anglers companion.

Synopsis:

Like the United States, the fishing in Virginia is as diverse as the terrain. From 600 pound giant tuna in its offshore waters to that evolutionary aberration but delicious flounder in the Chesapeake, to oversized bucketmouths in the piedmont lakes to eight inch brook trout in the bubbling mountain streams, what more can a dedicated angler ask for.

In this book Martin Freed and Ruta Vaskys give a sampling of what an angler is to expect from Virginia. Though over 100 locations are described, that is just a small number of the total. If you had a few lifetimes, the Old Dominion has more fishing opportunities than anyone could possible expect to try. But one can at least if give it a go. What more can any fisher ask?
