About this title


Recounting pilgrimages near and far - to the Delaware, the Beaverkill, the Schoharie, the Madison, and the Big Hole - Nick Lyons explores a passion for angling that draws him ever closer to the seamless web of life in rivers. He is a city-dweller and never forgets that cities are part of the complex and inexorable reality of modern life; but he is also, in Ed Zern's phrase, that happy and compulsive combination of angler-poet-romantic, and rivers not only touch his heart and imagination but provide a vital link to the natural world. Bright Rivers chronicles the author's passion. He tells of experiences shared with angling friends - some moving, some hilarious - and shares reminiscences of big trout taken, released, or, sometimes, lost: for Lyons is an admitted master of frustration and may well have written more about not catching fish than anyone else.

About the Author:

Nick Lyons has been an English professor and book publisher, and his many books and essays on fishing have made him one of the most popular writers about the sport. He resides in Woodstock, New York.
