Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
No one wrote with more warm, downhome affection for flyfishing than the late Robert Traver. He especially loved fishing for his beloved and bejeweled native brook trout on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, mostly on what he called "Frenchman's Pond," near Ishpeming.
The tales he told made two memorable books, Trout Madness and Trout Magic; text for a brilliant story in photographs ( Anatomy of a Fisherman); and numerous essays and stories in a wide variety of magazines. His prose gives us, as Arnold Gingrich has said, "that wonderful, relaxed, lazy, unhurried and unflustered, comfortable 'old shoe' feeling, page after page."
Traver on Fishing collects the best that the old judge wrote about his favorite sport - tall tales, strange happenings and true lore, including his famous 'Testament of a Fisherman'. This book is a marvelous catch of wit, wisdom, and anecdote sure to delight everyone who enjoys a master storyteller, who just happens to write here about his wonderful world of trout fishing.
