Anyone would be hard-pressed to find a pastime more emblematic of the western spirit than fly-fishing. Liberating, poetic, wild, soothing and inspiring, it pushes the boundaries of the mind. In essays ranging from introspective to ironic, angler authors Chadd VanZanten and Russ Beck distill the purest truths of fly-fishing into essential, often humorous rules of thumb. With kernels like "always tell the truth sometimes" and "all the fish are underwater," wade into the blue ribbon waters of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Utah to reflect metaphysically on these lines of practical wisdom.

About the Author:

Chadd VanZanten's essays on fly-fishing appear in the online fly-fishing journal Eat Sleep Fish and in The History Press anthology Utah Reflections. His short fiction can be found in Between Places, an anthology of poetry and prose by LUW Press. Chadd lives in Logan, where he works as a professional editor. When he is not writing, he is fishing. The opposite is also true.

Russ Beck received the Frederick Mannford Award for creative writing from the Western Literature Association. He edits and contributes to both howsmallatrout.wordpress.com and Braidedbrook.com. He teaches writing at Utah State University. This is his first book.

Review:

"Alternating between essays by the two fishermen and friends, the book (which is illustrated with black-and-white and color photography, often featuring face-splitting grins on the faces of successful fisherfolk, their friends and family) is funny and joyful and not a little irreverent. Both of these writers bring exuberance and youth to their storytelling, and a modern attitude sprinkled with just the right amount of irony that's refreshing in a fly-fishing book. But it also offers enough of the familiar and old-fashioned to join it in a chain with some of the great literature on the sport." --Erin H. Turner, Big Sky Journal
