An Entirely Synthetic Fish by Anders Halverson

An Entirely Synthetic Fish

This noteworthy title came to light during a local watershed meeting and we just had to check it out! Thanks Ken Undercoffer for recommending this title.

Anders Halverson provides an exhaustively researched and grippingly rendered account of the rainbow trout and why it has become the most commonly stocked and controversial freshwater fish in the United States. Originally discovered in the streams of northern California, rainbow trout have been artificially distributed in streams across America for more than a century. Halverson discusses the spread of the rainbow trout and how a fish that has gained incredible popularity among anglers has also produced environment problems and controversy. A great read for any angler who has gone after rainbows in their local trout stream.
