LOCAL FISH IDENTIFICATION BOOK
Tired of trying to identify species of fish from descriptions such as “large and greenish,” we decided that there had to be a better way. So, a few years ago we started producing a booklet called the "FISH IDENTIFICATION GUIDE FOR CATSKILL, N.Y., GREENE COUNTY, AND IMMEDIATE VICINITY.” This works out real well. Included therein are full color illustrations for more than 60 different species of fish that can be captured locally; also included for each specie are descriptions, locations and fishing suggestions. 12 pages, each page hard laminated so as to be waterproof - $19.95 at the shop plus $1.60 tax; add $7.50 if you want it mailed out.
