Michael Klimkos: Waters Of The Valley: 50 Years Of Trout Unlimited In The Cumberland Valley

The Cumberland Valley Trout Unlimited Chapter is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and as part of the celebration a new book has just been published on its history in Central Pennsylvania.
Waters of the Valley: 50 Years of Trout Unlimited in the Cumberland Valley by Michael Klimkos is a richly detailed book covering the story of how Trout Unlimited came to the Cumberland Valley of Pennsylvania, the efforts the chapters (yes - 2 chapters) made to protect the waters and some of the fun along the way.
And it is much more than that. The book delves into history of the Valley as well and answers some questions that you may have wondered about:
-- How did the Yellow Breeches Creek get its name?
-- Which came first, brown trout or rainbow trout?
-- What did a rubber pipe in the Letort have to do with clean water?
-- Who wanted to dynamite the Letort - and why?
The book is currently available online through Amazon and it will be available in the next few weeks at Precision Tackle in Mt. Holly Springs. Click Here to watch for an announcement of a book signing event at Precision.
