The Fly Fisherman's Guide to the Meaning of Life

What A Lifetime on the Water Has Taught Me About Love, Work, Food, Sex, and Getting Up Early

The fly fisherman is a unique breed of sportsman—he loves the sparkle of sunlight dancing off a trout stream, the surreal beauty of a mayfly hatch on a spring day, and the heart-thumping eruption of a surface strike by a large trout. Here Peter Kaminsky writes about the angler’s passion and his pursuit of knowledge. He explains how long days without fish can teach you how to deal with failure and how releasing a caught fish can remind us about ethics. He offers inspiration to readers who love the sport as much as he does.
