Merly did plenty of legwork for amazing book 'Flyfisher's Guide to Connecticut'
346: The number of pages in the book, whose index may be longer than the full text of other fishing guides you may have run across.
228: The number of Connecticut rivers and streams profiled in the book, each and every one of them personally visited and explored by the author.
117: The number of Connecticut lakes and ponds profiled in the book.
32: The number of detailed maps for accessing those rivers and streams (and lakes and ponds, too).
29: The number of Flyfisher's Guides for other states published by Montana-based Wilderness Adventure Press.
8: The number of Connecticut counties the author spent considerable time in while researching the book (that's all of them).
1: The number of years it took to research and write the book, during which Merly spent many a night sleeping in the back of his pickup truck while exploring obscure streams like the Podunk (yes, there is one), which flows out of the Niederwerfer Wildlife Sanctuary in South Windsor, and surprisingly pristine Oil Mill Brook in Waterford.
