About this title


Seth Norman is one of America's finest sporting writers. He is the recipient of the 1998 award for best fiction by Fly Rod & Reel magazine. Here is a collection of his finest stories, including many entirely new tales never before published. Seth takes the reader way beyond mere technique, (although there is plenty to be learned by reading this book), to another level of understanding the intricate, interwoven texture of life and fishing. He will delight and surprise you with his lyrical narratives. His writing can evoke bittersweet memories and deep introspection or make you laugh out loud. You will read it over and over again. Not to be missed, this is the premier book by a singular talent in the world of sporting literature. We are very happy to offer this fine volume from a writer we will all be enjoying for many years.

From the Back Cover:

Crooked cops, feral pit bulls, a baby-herding border collie, fine friends, and mending hearts - they all relate to fly fishing in Seth Norman's groundbreaking collection. Brimming with pathos and laughter, Meanderings includes odes to "Women Who Fish and the Men Who Love Them" and a schizophrenic mother's love for her children that becomes manifest in the black and gold jewel of a caddis-fly case. "Jell-O is too a main dish," the author advises inner tubers towed away by striped bass; elsewhere he likens pike to gangsters.Author Seth Norman calls these stories meanderings. But there is method in his study of madness, and technique in his drift through bright riffles and deep currents. He is obsessed with waters and fish; people angle through every adventure, offering unexpected insights. A bitter woman finds heart in a boy's hope and devotion; and a late-night encounter reveals that to land a sturgeon with a 9mm pistol, you really ought to bring three clips. (6 x 9, 204 pages)
