Fisherman's Summer

Foreword by Nick Lyons

About The Book

An end to Roderick L. Haig-Brown’s “seasons” cycle, Fisherman’s Summer is a book that can be read again and again, for both knowledge and pleasure. In this installment, he focuses again on the rivers of his native British Columbia such as the Campbell, the Columbia, and the Nimpkish. Among his vast wealth of knowledge concerning fly fishing, readers are also exposed to his wise reflections. His discussions of the past fishermen of these rivers, including Native Americans and pioneers, and his hope that the future of these rivers will remain abundant and full of life, will touch the hearts of fishers and non-fishers alike. Chapters included are:

Summer Defined
The Indian and Me
The Beginning of Change
The Dry Fly and Very Fast Water
Standard-Bearer—Arctic
Fish Derbies
The Great Destroyers
The Beaches
Tsable River
Blackhole
And many more
Within these pages are the exciting angling stories of an expert flyfisherman, laced with thoughtful reflections and musings, all of which showcase Haig-Brown as the excellent writer and flyfisherman that he was.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.
