Synopsis:

“Its been a lifelong, ever-expanding journey, with many big fish and faraway waters and dramatic moments . . . and yet I dont think any of those moments or any of those places or ?sh has thrilled me any more than seeing the twitch of my fly line where it entered the muddy waters of my backyard pond . . .”

In this collection of true fly-fishing stories by acclaimed novelist and outdoor writer William G. Tapply, the natural appeal of fly fishing comes to life. Each story captures an aspect of the sport that makes it special to sportsmen and readers. From “Dam It” to “First Light” to “When Trout Get Antsy,” these thirty timeless pieces are unique in their own ways, and yet, all are classic Tapply. Covering the span of his remarkable life, these stories move from his earlier days—teaching himself to fish in the pond behind his house, using everything from worms to leeches—to his memories of the opening days of trout season each year, to the first unforgettable leap of a tarpon in Belize, to trying to reel in a “keeper” bass using a turkey bone. These writings serve as testament to the thrill of fishing, the inimitable energy of casting at daybreak, and the innocence of streamside summers.
