About the Book
So, for those thinking that a 15-inch trout taken on a tiny dry fly is as good as it gets, brace yourself. Maine’s smaller waters represent a better opportunity of taking a trophy trout than do larger lakes. In small ponds, finding proper habitat and thus, resident gamefish, requires little effort. Once you get a successful lake trolling trip under your belt a whole new world of exciting and rewarding angling is open to you.
