About this title


(Synopsis) Notes From an Old Fly Book is a new book of fly-fishing lore that casts a line across sixty years of fishing in Colorado's high country. Drawing from his personal experiences, Gordon Wickstrom meditates in essays, stories, poems, and even a song on who anglers are, what they do, and why in the world they do it. Narrative, memorial, and critical - sometimes cranky but always lucid - each story searches the deeper, often turbulent waters of the fly fishing phenomenon and uncovers compelling but restrained reasons why it has such a hold on so many today. The book casts itself deep into the reader's soul and searches for answers there as well. Wickstrom, a native to Colorado's Front Range, records what might otherwise be forgotten, with the implication that younger anglers, still out there wading the big rivers, should look closely to their fishing and the time when they may require the consolations of what they read in their own old fly books.
