This ample selection of articles and essays by one of America's most popular writers about fly-fishing begins with a moment on Michigan's Au Sable River-the exact moment when the author lost his heart to fly-fishing. This collection chronicles a fishing life punctuated by a revealing trip with one of his grown sons and mellow reflections from a hospital bed. This is the broadest of Nick Lyons's books, with sections on tarpon and pike fishing in the Marquesas and in France, bass bugging on a small Connecticut pond, and trout fishing on unnamed creeks and blue-ribbon western riv.
Includes bibliographical references and index.
