Freshwater Fish of the Northeast
by Matt Patterson and David A. Patterson




Overview -
Most anglers are well aware of the popular game fish that inhabit the Northeast, including the largemouth bass, the rainbow trout, and the yellow perch. But the region's inland waters boast a much broader array of fish than first meets the eye (or hook). The father-and-son team of David A. Patterson and Matt Patterson have pursued both game fish and bait fish in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York. In Freshwater Fish of the Northeast, they describe more than 60 different species, from the well known to the obscure, including the redfin pickerel, the blueback trout, and the slimy sculpin. This colorful and helpful guide includes detailed information on habits, habitats, history, and more. In order to best capture the look and appeal of these fish in their native waters, most of the images are based on the authors' own live catches. The pencil-and-acrylic illustrations render each species in lifelike detail, with close attention given to unique physical characteristics. Both art book and guidebook, this volume will stir some fond memories of fish caught--and a few of those that got away.
