What People are saying about this

Arnold Gingrich
Traver in Trout Magic gives you that wonderful, relaxed, lazy, unhurried, and unflustered, comfortable 'old shoe' feeling, page after page, adding up to a book so captivating to read that you really feel there should be some way to learn to hum or whistle it.
