Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The editor of Uncommon Waters: Women Write About Fishing (LJ 10/1/91) presents 17 marvelous stories by writers including novelists E. Annie Proulx and Pam Houston, as well as professional fly fisher Joan Wulff. Both men and women will enjoy these sometimes poignant, more often humorous tales of uniformly high literary quality. The anglers range from rookies ("My pathetic fly line swirls and tangles in the pellucid water, like icing artfully dribbled on a coffee cake") to the obsessed ("I am having trouble explaining trout fishing to my city friends. They think it's either idleness or blood lust."). With locales ranging from Maine to Minnesota to Oregon and one hilarious foray into Mongolia, these tales are heartily recommended for public libraries wherever fly fishing is popular.-Kathy Ruffle, Coll. of New Caledonia Lib., Prince George, B.C.
