Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most prolific fly-fishing writers of the twentieth century, Roderick L. Haig-Brown continues his “seasons” cycle with Fishermans Spring, a book that is as much about the deep philosophical aspects of fly fishing as it is about fly fishing itself. Readers will learn about the abundance of spring life in the streams of British Columbia while also being treated to Haig-Browns thoughtful musings and ideas about the rewards of fly fishing streams. Chapters readers will encounter include:

Spring Defined

Early Cutthroat Lakes

Fly Types

The Secret Life

Fishing and the Common Man

On Wading

Fishermen and Forestry

Fishing and Milkmaids

The Forecast

Recognizing Birds

Putting Fish Back

A Boy and a Fish Pole

And many more

Discover within these pages how fly fishing can enrich life and bring joy to every fisher. Both novices and experts alike will find a wealth of knowledge in Fishermans Spring.

About the Author
