Cast Again: Tales of a Fly-Fishing Guideby Jennifer Olsson, Jennifer Lowe (Illustrator)
Jennifer Olsson's dozen tales, fueled by her experiences as a fishing guide in Montana, introduce us to a colorful panoply of clients: a wealthy, middle-aged woman forced by her husband to learn to fly fish, who talks the author into taking her shopping instead; a young woman who is determined to fish despite her boyfriend's disdain for the sport; a man who, given just a few months to live, miraculously recovered and has looked forward to his day of fishing for years. We are taken to the pristine trout streams of Montana, to the tarpon flats of the Florida Keys, and to the icy rivers of Sweden to fish for grayling. Cast Again is also the story of a woman's life built around fly fishing and the aesthetics, ethics, beauty, and rhythms of the days that define the angling life. It will appeal immensely to all fly fishers, especially to the legions of women just discovering the sport, but also anyone seeking a life more connected to the natural world and more dictated by the heart's desires. Crisp as perfect casts, the essays in Cast Again are funny, poignant, fresh, and vibrating with life. (5 3/4 X 8 1/2, 164 pages, illustrations)
