Synopsis: Tight Lines and Heavy Game Bags is an eclectic collection of short stories and essays about everything from bird dogs to Zumbador. These wonderful stories take the reader hunting and fishing around the world, from the highlands of Scotland and County Mayo in Ireland, to the high Ecuadorian Andes, to the shores of the Black Sea, to the rugged deserts and mountains of the American west. The stories draw upon the experiences the author had over more than three decades hunting and fishing on four continents. This is a collection of stories about hunting and fishing in it's broadest sense. Some of the stories will make you laugh out loud, some may bring a tear, some may even make you think, but all will entertain. For those fans of Mr. Gowdey's book on German Shorthairs, his lifelong love affair with bird dogs shows through in this book as well. You will still find stories about three generations of his German Shorthairs, and the adventures he had with them hunting birds on two continents. However, you will also find stories about fishing for marlin, bonefish, Atlantic salmon, and trout; hunting for wild goats, the quails and pheasant of North America, and the perdiz and zumbador of South America. This book belongs on the shelf of every hunter, angler, and bird dog lover.

From the Author: This book was in many respects a labor of love.  The short stories draw upon four decades of experiences hunting and fishing on three continents.  I hope that my love for the people, the special places, the dogs, the game and fish, shine throughout this collection.  
      While the book was a labor of love, it's writing was bittersweet.  Some of the stories are snapshots of times and places that are gone, but which I deeply miss.  Others memorialize some wonderful people and dogs that are no longer alive.    I hope that the reader can visit those places with me and meet those special people and dogs through the stories in this book.  Those places were worth visiting and those people and dogs worth knowing.   I hope those journeys bring the reader as much joy as they originally brought me.
