Astream: American Writers on Fly Fishingby Robert Demott
Synopses & Reviews
This marvelous collection features stories from some of Americas finest and most respected writers about one of the worlds most solitary and satisfying sports: fly fishing. For the first time, the stories of thirty-one acclaimed writers including Guy de la Valdène, Jim Harrison, Michael Keaton, Sydney Lea, Ted Leeson, Nick Lyons, Thomas McGuane, Joseph Monninger, Le Anne Schreiber, and many others come together in one collection.
Flyfishers and nonflyfishers alike will recognize in these poignant tales the universal aspects of the appreciation of nature, the necessity of conservation, and the joy and knowledge that come from time spent on freshwater and saltwater. This is a delightful, handsome volume that captures the allure and spirit of fly fishing and those who love it.
