This book Days on the Water by Mike Sajna is a history book, with a central theme of fishing, and fly fishing for trout, in particular, very readable, enjoyable, and informative. However, this book is much more than fly fishing history: the people, the places, the inventions, and the fishing, with a documentation of the environmental destruction that has occurred since Europeans settled here. The history is very readable, because Sajna intertwines it with his own experiences, both on and off the trout streams.

Mike Sajna renders his days on the water in a way that brings home the full experience of fishing, the air, the water, the personal stresses shed or brought along. He describes the nuances of particular trout streams; such as Loyalhanna Creek, Laurel Hill Creek, and Dumbar Creek in western Pennsylvania; Hayes Run and Hickory Run in the Poconos; Clear Shade and Kettle Creek in the northern part of the state. Not forgotten are the fish themselves, and the ancient arts of fly tying, casting, and timing a Green Drake hatch.
