It might be argued that the Willowemoc Creek holds as much significance in the history of American fly fishing as the celebrated Beaver Kill, the water it weds after its 27-mile journey through a lovely valley in the Catskill Mountains in New York. In his influential 1864 work, The American Angler's Book, Thaddeus Norris (1811 - 1877), described fishing the stream with Grannoms and Jenny Spinners, two old British patterns. Anglers who followed Norris also wrote compellingly about the creek.
