About this title


(Synopsis) An author and connoisseur of fine food has traveled to England to begin work on his latest culinary collection. But the research is a mere justification for indulging his other passion, fly-fishing. Heavy rain postpones his time on the stream, so he decides instead of heading for the Itchen to dig into medieval manuscripts at the British Museum. Among auld recipes, a cryptic reference to a legendary local fisherman named Shupton leads him on a hunt for the pattern of the legend's perfect fly. This clever mystery pokes fun, satirizes, and even lambastes, and it all works because Schullery understands both the sport and those who love it.
