A surprising find and a great collection of short stories. Even if you are not interested in fly fishing at all, this is still a wonderful read, full of beautiful nature snapshots and excellent writing. The stories succeed to introduce and partly explain the whole philosophy of fly fishing. I have never tried it, but after reading these stories, I would definitely love to. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 187806763X, Hardcover)

"Many of these writers came to fly fishing in order to defy, or to wow, or to woo a man. But once the River speaks, the man becomes a superfluous distraction and a woman finds herself standing alone, in living water, defying and wowing the self. This is the moment the fly fisher is born. This beautiful birth is the heartbeat of these stories." -David James Duncan, author of "The River Why" and "The Brothers K"
Includes stories by Pulitzer-Prize-winner E. Anne Proulx, "Cowboys Are My Weakness" author Pam Houston, fly casting champion Joan Slavato Wulff, Lorian Hemingway, LeAnne Schreiber, and more
Since the success of "Fly Fishing Through the Midlife Crisis" and "A River Runs Through It," fly fishing has been growing in popularity among both sexes
Both men and women will enjoy these sometimes poignant, more often humorous tales of uniformly high literary quality.
