A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

Hey... sorry i just saw this

the Meck books is good... there are are few others... if you goto a local book store, there will be a good collection
I know the fly shop is a bit of a hike across town... but they have a few as well
Here are 2 more from amazon
http://www.amazon.co...n/dp/1879475022
http://www.amazon.co.../ref=pd_sim_b_1

I find most of the book articles on Western PA to be out of date and a bit generous in their descriptions... or maybe i have old versions... just my opinion

For you, going east, north, or south will give you the best options... not much in terme of trout west of you
everything is pretty much done now
you can still fish dries on mtn streams... but this will not be during "Hatches"
the limestoners will fish midges through the winter

March/April will be when the major stuff starts back up
