What People are Saying About This
"A superb mix of natural history, biographyand fishing. Not to be missed."
"This is a wise book. If you're a fisherman you'll love it, but also if you're a human being."
"A wise and wonderful book flowing with love for the life of the Earthhuman, animal, the great woods, and the deep slow pulse of rock and water. Being about 'something more important than fish,' Tony Taylor's book will delight all who angle for the great and wild things, above all beauty and truth."
Ronald Wright, author of A Short History of Progress
"In this simple story of a fishing trip with his grandson, Tony Taylor weaves an enchanting tapestry of memories, thoughts, and knowledge with humor and affection. I was enthralled with Fishing the River of Time from beginning to end."
"I have read perhaps a hundred books on fishing, and a while ago I decided that the topic has been pretty much covered upside down and inside out. I was therefore pleased to discover that Tony Taylor has produced a marvelously fresh and uniquely educational story about fish, rivers, geology, and grandfathers. If you appreciate any of these things, buy this book."
Jake MacDonald, author of In Bear Country
