ABOUT THE BOOK
It seems Iíve always felt most at ease when Iím near the water with a fly rod in my hand. From an early age I was drawn to lakes and rivers by that inner pull thatís probably best understood by those who fish. The articles and essays that Iíve collected here are a reflection of more than forty-five years of my passion for this remarkable sport. In these pages Iíve shared my interests in fly-fishing, fly tying, and bamboo rod makingóand through it all is woven memorable times with family and friends.
In some of the selections I take a nostalgic look at the roots of my entry into fly-fishing as told in Bluegill Summers, Ice Out on the French River, and The Old Briggsville Dam. In others I write of more recent times exploring streams in Southern California as in Lost Creek and the Arroyo Toad. While in other selections I travel to fish the waters of the Eastern Sierras in and around Yosemite National Park as in Dana Fork Revisited, Yosemite Creek, and Easing up to a High Sierra Lake. In both Howliní at the Moon and Fishing the Braids my fly-fishing road trip continues as I recall great times spent with friends in Montana.
For the reader, I hope my tales and the locations of my fly-fishing waters will serve as a backdrop for their own fly-fishing experiences, and stir a passion for a sport that we all can share no matter where our home waters may be.
