Montana Time

Overview

This chronicle of a Montana trout fisherman's seasons describes the first warm days when the ice melts in spring through the time when the rivers freeze again - a pursuit of trout by a passionate angler who builds a calendar unconnected to Mondays. Along the way, such concerns as the essential occupation of wintertime Montanans, the "social impact" of the famed salmonfly hatch, and the basic nature of grizzly bears preoccupy Barsness.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Montana's fishing streams--looking at them, standing in them, floating on them--seem to have taken over the author's senses. Fortunately, Barsness reports these sensations without the purple prose that often marks articles about fishing the waters of the West. Observing as though with Thoreau's ``big eye,'' he writes in stream-time: ``Then one of the smaller fish starts upward . . . tail sweeping from side to side like a leaf easing down through the air.'' With the notable exception of his wife, Eileen, whose brief beginning casting efforts he captures with Tolstoyan perfection, readers meet few characters on these streams; even fewer events occur here, yet instantly recognizable truths emerge throughout. In these six slight essays Barsness, a freelance writer, reaches for the single right phrase, recalling the finely wrought stories in the late Norman MacLean's A River Runs Through It. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Like poetry or monasticism, fly fishing is not an escape from something but an entry into another way of knowing. It is always a joy to discover a writer who is fully and expertly privy to this insight. In six reflective, autobiographical essays Barsness explores various aspects of his love affair with Western trout. Although practically useful to fishers of Montana waters, this title can happily claim its place on any shelf where the likes of Nick Lyons, Monty Montgomery, John Gierach, and W.D. Wetherell are read and appreciated. Recommended for Rocky Mountain libraries and those which make fly fishing a priority.-- David Panciera, Westerly P.L., R.I.
