About this title


The master angler shares his love of the sport and his experiences fishing in the waters of Canada, the Caribbean, northern Scotland, and the South Pacific

From the Back Cover:

Like a fly box with colorful patterns, these pages hold some of the best and brightest moments of a long-fly-fishing life. Here is the ecstasy (occasional agony) of fishing for trout, salmon, and saltwater gamefish - in waters from Canada to the Caribbean, northern Scotland to the South Pacific. You'll meet some of the most memorable fishing partners ever to share a stream, discover the long-lost legacy of a famous pioneer fly tyer, and feel the warmth of an extraordinary gift from an old fishing friend.There is a funny and poignant tale of two Russian anglers who came to fish in America; a glimpse at the "Blue Heaven" of dry-fly fishing; a look into "the truth" behind fly-fishing magazines and books; and the result of one angler's diligent search for the source of the world's best rod-building bamboo.If you've ever wondered how fly patterns get their names, what the perfect river would be like, or what Dame Juliana Berners might be doing if she were alive today, read this book. And there's much more in this warmly written memoir of the people, places, things, realities, and fantasies encountered by the author in the more than fifty years of fishing the waters he now remembers as his "rivers of the heart." (61/4 X 91/4, 252 pages, illustrations)
