In this charming collection of fly-fishing short stories, readers will discover that fly fishing can lead to many places. Experience the various journeys taken by the author to places like remote Labrador, Alaska, Scotland, Ireland, and the Florida Keys. Enter a miniscule Pepsi shack on the Catawba in the Carolinas; squeeze into a tackle shop no bigger than a rooster's nest on Forty-Second Street in New York City; find yourself on Kettle Creek in Pennsylvania's Forbidden Lands.
Not merely a travel book of fly-fishing locales, In the Company of Rivers is also infused with the fragrance of Montecristos, the plumy sweetness of vintage port, and the distinctive sizzle of sirloins on a Coleman stove. Readers will also encounter such unique characters as Mr. Earp, a 100 percent West Virginian and 50 percent Cherokee, and Mr. Cotter, the archetypal New York cop turned fly-fishing gentleman.
A unique portrayal of the fly-fishing world, In the Company of Rivers will have you laughing throughout the entirety of its pages.
