Meet the Author: Bob Shannon + Peter Shea
October 17 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for an evening with Bob Shannon & Peter Shea, authors of Vermont Trout Streams.
About the Book:
This book is the first ground-up, comprehensive treatment of Vermont’s
trout streams in more than thirty years. Within it, each author brings their
own unique decades of experience to bear, in creating an extraordinary
guidebook. The result is a complete guide to the geography and strategies
of fly fishing the streams and rivers of Vermont — from Abbot to
Zeebeedee Brooks. It is a reference work that anyone who chases trout in
Vermont will want in their library. It offers the fly-fishing angler, in
particular, an unprecedented wealth of information on the when, how, and where to fish.
