Overview

“Spring Creek is everything a fishing book should be,” says Craig Nova. “It has the ability to convey the magic that always exists between somebody who loves fishing and a particular piece of water that endlessly lives up to its end of the bargain.” It has been called Lyons's masterpiece.

The river is one of those rare places where the trout are as long as your arm but also exceedingly difficult to catch. Lyons explores its secrets and confronts its greatest challenges. At first he catches little. Then slowly, he acquires the various and special skills and disciplines necessary to take the large wary brown trout of this extraordinary river.

Spring Creek is a memoir of halcyon days on a remarkable river and it draws a rare portrait of an angler actually learning to fish more wisely. It is a richly humorous and perceptive account of an angler's passion for his spot—and a book all fishermen will cherish.

Editorial Reviews

Ed Zern
“Fly-fishing isn't a spectator sport, but if Nick Lyons fishes as skillfully as he writes about it, I'd pay to watch him.”
Jeff Silverman
“A fisherman's fisherman and a writer's writer, Lyons is an acknowledged master of both crafts. Literate, philosophic, passionate, witty, and self-effacing, he has stories to tell and he's skilled in the art of telling them.”
Harry Middleton
“Nick Lyons is a national treasure . . . a writer of literature who fishes, and one of the best we have.”
