Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imagine A River Runs Through It seen through the eyes of Dave Barry and you'll get an idea of Rich Tosches' sharp-eyed reflections on the art, hobby, and obsession of fly fishing.

Armed with a rod, a pen, and an eccentric sense of humor, Pulitzer Prize-nominated sportswriter Rich Tosches headed for the Grand Teton Mountains, site of the World Fly Fishing Championship, and cast a keen eye on his fellow trollers from all over the globe. This encounter-and many others during a lifetime dedicated to the pursuit of fly fishing -are captured in a side-splitting collection of observations on every angle-and angler-of one of America's favorite pastimes.

Synopsis:

Armed with a rod, a pen, and an eccentric sense of humor, Tosches begins his globe-trotting exploration in the Grand Teton Mountains, site of the World Fly Fishing Championship. The result is a sidesplitting collection of observations on every angle--and angler--of one of America's favorite pastimes.

About the Author

A former UPI and LA Times writer, Rich Tosches was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his Olympics coverage. He has also written for Sports Illustrated, Modern Maturity, and other national magazines. Rich and his family live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, to take advantage of excellent fly fishing and other outdoor activities. Named Colorados Journalist of the Year by the states Press Association, and once called “the funniest man in America” by Steve Allen, Tosches has been the humor columnist for the Colorado Springs Gazette since 1993.
