Schoharie Creek

Schoharie Creek

Although I am a former fly fishing guide who spent ten glorious years on the Beaverkill River in New York’s Catskill Mountains, I don’t often write about the subject of fly fishing in my blog.  Even a professional guide had to start somewhere, however, so I thought I would tell you how I began my love affair with what turned out to be my favorite activity.  This is a short story that goes way back to the early 1970s.  It’s called The First Time, and I hope you enjoy it.

NOTE: Joe Perrone Jr is the author of the highly-successful Matt Davis Mystery Series: As the Twig is Bent, Opening Day (a 2012 Indie B.R.A.G. medallion winner), Twice Bitten, and Broken Promises.  All four are available in paperback and E-book from  As the Twig is Bent and Opening Day are also in audiobook from, with Twice Bitten and Broken Promises currently in production.  If humor is your cup of tea, consider Joe’s rip-roaring, coming-of-age novel, Escaping Innocence: A Story of Awakening, set in the tumultuous Sixties.  It, too, is available in print, E-book, and audio book editions.
