Imagine A River Runs Through It seen through the eyes of Dave Barry and you'll get an idea of Rich Tosches' sharp-eyed reflections on the art, hobby, and obsession of fly fishing.
Armed with a rod, a pen, and an eccentric sense of humor, Rich Tosches begins his globe-trotting exploration in the Grand Teton Mountains, site of the World Fly Fishing Championship. From the choices of a creek in Massachusetts, where he was first introduced to fly fishing, to the wilds of Alaska and New Zealand to his Colorado home, Tosches offers up a side-splitting collection of observations on every angle-and angler-of one of America's favorite pastimes.
A great holiday, birthday, or Father's Day gift.
