    I'm not up on fishing in PA, but something I have found that might save you some coin (if you haven't already) is to go to Amazon and put in the book title Fishing in PA. See all of the books that pop up and notice most, if not all, are available used. I have bought several used fly fishing books and the condition is usually much better than the online description. And one time I hit the jackpot in that the previous owner had written pretty good notes on a separate piece of paper which was still in the book.

    I agree that there are good deals on Amazon if you buy used, which I do. There are several options for PA fly fishing on Amazon. Some available used; some not. I was hoping someone here was familiar with those options. The reviews on Amazon were not especially helpful.

    The three I have found most useful are as follows:
    Trout Streams of Pennsylvania by Dwight Landis; Fly Fisher's Guide to Pennsylvania by Tom Gilmore; and Keystone Fly Fishing by Mile Heck et. al.

    Wherever you journey, stop at a fly shop, buy some flies or tippet, and get the latest on water, hatches, spots to fish etc.-- whether you're far west at Neshannock Creek Outfitters or far east at TCO.

    Best of luck; PA has some very diverse and very enjoyable waters.

    keystone Fly Fishing is the best one and the Tom Gilmore book is good also. The Landis book is somewhat dated and streams have changed but it still has good information. The Charlie Meck books are dated also but can give you a idea how some streams used to be both good and bad and are different today

    There is another book "Pennsylvania Trout & salmon Fishing Guide" by Mike Sajna. This book has a lot of historical information about the streams and rivers. However its use as a Fishing Guide is lacking. Its also dated as well.

    Yeah and it's a shame that a significant number of the angling population are heavily in favor of put and take fishing, and don't realize that PA if managed properly could be on par with Montana in terms of fish size and action. This state boggles my mind...
