There is some great fly-fishing in Washington County, NY. So, it makes sense that Stu Bartow - a writer who lives near the famed Battenkill - has combined his love of writing and fly fishing in a new book in Teaching Trout to Talk — the zen of small stream fly fishing.
In the book, Stuart Bartow answers questions such as, what's the difference between a trout bum and a zen fly fisher? Do fish have souls, and when is the best time to fish?
Stu Bartow teaches writing and literature at SUNY Adirondack. He is also chair of the Battenkill Conservancy. He will be speaking and signing his new book at Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga Springs on Saturday, April 25th.
