About this title


Here is longtime fly-fishing writer William G. Tapply on the large and small pleasures of fishing, from fly tying to hunting the big ones. In "Extreme Angling," Tapply dismisses the idea of fly fishing as "the quiet sport," with tales of grizzly attacks, rogue logs, and big water. In "Hexed," he finds out that his local stream - overstocked and overfished - offers a lot more than he ever suspected. In "Paying Homage," he describes the mystical joys of the Beaverkill in upstate New York. In "Seven for the Road," he gives readers a peek at some of the most important things he stows in his tackle bag, including the books he carries on every trip.

Included here are also Tapply’s ruminations on:
Coming Unstuck
Playing Guns
Bank Shots
Bass Bugging for Trout
Zen and the Art of Jiggering
Eastern Steelhead
The Fish of 1,000 Casts
Selective Perch
The Upside-Down Dun
Flymphs Reconsidered
Tap’s Bug
and many more 

Gone Fishin' is an inspiring collection, from a fisherman whose writing is well known and even more respected.
