Excerpt From the Long Pond on the Little Magalloway Chapter:

“If fly fishing is a religion, then Long Pond on the Little Magalloway River is one of its more sacred shrines. Speak of the place to locals and they will deny its existence. Query a guide and he will quickly change the subject to Upper Dam, the Kennebago River, or perhaps the lower Magalloway below Route 16. Those who will admit having fished Long Pond speak of it with reverence, in hushed tones, eyes glazed over. It is a place haunted by truth.”

“Settle into a comfortable chair some cold night and read Shadows in the Stream. Romano will
 make you feel as if you are casting a fly or trolling a streamer far from the cares of everyday life.”

On The Water Magazine; November 2005
“Once in a while I come across a book that captures the essence of the angling experience
on a personal level and does the one thing all good fishing books should do: make me want
 to fish there.”

The Maine Sportsman; October 2005
“The book is as good as any mood title around. Romano shines with his imagery…
Good stuff…the best.”
