Overview

Celebrate the fisherman in your life.

Fishing is not just a sport; it is a way of life for generations of grandfathers, fathers, sons, and daughters. From the annual salmon fishing expedition that was a dying father's last wish to a daughter's loving homage to the man who taught her to cast a line, this touching compendium of stories, poems, and memoirs explores the time-tested traditions that exist in both fatherhood and fishing, and honors the bonds that unite families through their love of the pastime. Featuring pieces from such acclaimed writers as Norman Maclean (A River Runs Through It), William G. Tapply, Thomas McGuane, Jack Hemingway, and Howell Raines, this collection includes previously published work as well as original essays and poetry from a wide range of fishing enthusiasts, all with their own compelling tales to share about how simply catching a fish has brought them closer to the men in their lives.
