From a short jaunt along Vermont’s Long Trail to Labrador’s most remote mountain range, Long Trail Trout will take you to some of the finest wilderness locations in North America. Chasing golden trout, high in Montana’s Beartooths, or backpacking for cutthroats in the vast Bob Marshall Wilderness, the true stories and maps bring you on a series of armchair fishing adventures. An arrest, a honeymoon gone awry, bear fears, and a life-threatening hurricane, are among the themes that take their turn in Shea’s personal anthology that is a fun and easy read. Long Trail Trout is available at your local bookstore, or by ordering here via PayPal.
For more than fifty years, with fly rod in hand, Shea has chased trout in the Green Mountain State and elsewhere. Along the way he has documented their geography in maps and guidebooks, and shared his personal, often hilarious, angling stories.
