Synopsis: The author shares his experiences fishing around the world for bonefish, rainbow trout, salmon, northern pike, steelhead, Arctic grayling, largemouth bass, and tarpon

Review: Having practiced medicine for more than 20 years in Alaska and Montana, E. Donnall Thomas Jr. packs an impressive résumé for a trout bum. But as he points out in one of the essays in this intelligent, good-humored collection, his years of experience can all be reduced to a means to an end: fly-fishing. These days, writing about the sport serves a similar purpose for Thomas, and he demonstrates a thorough understanding of the genre in Whitefish Can't Jump, shifting seamlessly between memoir, travelogue, philosophic musing, and scientific inquiry. Each of the 19 essays centers on a particular species of gamefish, but taxonomy is merely a springboard for the stories and observations that lurk behind the species' Latin names like brown trout under the cutbanks: a hooked rainbow nearly provokes a mid-river contretemps with a swimming grizzly, an impossible northern pike provides an evening distraction en route to a new job, and cutthroats inspire a remembrance of the journey of Lewis and Clark. Whitefish is a welcome addition to fly-fishing literature.
