Fisherman's Winter

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1954, Fishermans Winter is Roderick Haig-Browns final installment in his well-known “seasons” cycle. With a unique blend of experience and observation, Haig-Brown brings readers through the exotic rivers of South America in the winter months, showing rather than explaining the many things he encounters.

Rather than writing about typical winter fishing, Haig-Brown departs from British Columbia, where the other titles in his seasons cycle take place, and heads to unknown rivers in South America, where he learns as much as his readers will. Fishing a “second summer,” Haig-Brown inhabits Argentina and Chile, where five- and six-pound trout are abundant in the streams of the Andes. The many chapters on fishing in South America include:

The Lake of Big Rainbows

The Laja River

Some Incidental Things

Farm, Forest, and River

Lago Maihue and the Calcurrupe

The Beach of the Deer

Rivers of the Pampas

The Trout and Salmon of South America

Some Birds of Southern Chile and Argentina

Some Trees and Plants of Southern Chile

And much more!

Since Haig-Browns revolutionary fishing journey to South America, one that few anglers had dreamed of before this, many flyfishermen since have fished their own second summers on the fresh, cold rivers found there. Let this guide be your own tour of the wondrous rivers and streams of the Southern Hemisphere.

Synopsis:

An enchanting fly-fishing guide to the rivers and streams of South America.
