\u0022Despite the plethora of piscine literature,\u0022 say the authors of Fishing the Delaware Valley, \u0022we have tried to create a book unlike anything else on the market. With our approach that fishing is a major entertainment endeavor and that it is a family activity that can be pursued within fascinating historical and culinary settings, we have tried to demonstrate that, most important, fishing is serious fun.\u0022 The Delaware River is the last major free-flowing river in the eastern United States Drawing on their cumulative century of angling experience, the authors range through the 14,000 square miles of the Delaware River watershed, with offshore visits for saltwater fishing along the New Jersey coast. All the places they talk about are within three-and-a-half hours of Philadelphia by car. Besides giving directions to their favorite spots, the authors regale the reader with comments about what to expect of each place and how to make the most of your visit. Along the way they mention and frequently evaluate nearby tackle shops, restaurants, taverns, historical and scenic attractions, and even shopping opportunities. Throughout, they share their own experiences with the reader -- both the pride of spectacular catches and the embarrassment of spectacular follies. One of the authors admits to breaking a new rod in a restroom door. Another tells about having to be rescued from a midriver rock by the very anglers to whom he had just bragged about his accomplishments. They spice their descriptions with apt quotations adn finish it off, like a truly successful fishing day, with their favorite recipes. This is a book with something for everyone from the novice to the expert. Even non-fishing friends and family members will welcome the authors' suggestions for things to do while waiting for their loved one to land the perfect trout or will be entertained by the stories about those incomprehensible people who flock year-round to the Delaware Valley's lakes, ponds, streams, and coastal waters.
