About Vivid Publishing, Inc.

We are the only publishers of Professor Higbee'sŪ Stream & Lake Maps -- the first and only highly detailed maps of their kind. This series of state maps shows virtually every stream and lake in a state. Founded in 1989 by Larry Seaman and Karl Ings of Williamsport, Pennsylvania. We publish unique maps showing "vivid" details. Information on how the maps were created can be found on the Lost Stream Map Story page.

Hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles have been written about Professor Higbee'sŪ Stream & Lake Maps. You'll find quotes from the articles on the What Others Say page.

In the future, we plan to expand this site to include hundreds of products. We'll offer an extensive collection of where-to-fish books and maps.
