Overview

Going Home: If you chase fish long enough, sometimes they lead you home by Jeff Lund

It doesn't matter if you're in the woods every other weekend or every other day. Outdoorsman or angler are broad terms and applies to a large population. However, the title does not encapsulate someone who frequently engages in either. Ultimately, anglers, hunters, hikers, etc., are ordinary people whose lives move from anecdote to anecdote, until life gets serious. An outdoorsman is not immune to failure, complex life decisions, nor are things simpler. Being on the water with a fly rod or in the alpine with a rifle does not provide answers because neither a mountain or a fish can talk. However, when life brings trauma, a fly rod can be the best weapon with which to keep fighting. Going Home is a memoir about fishing, without being just about fishing. It's about a man contemplating direction and his sense of home after he is jerked from his linear journey of a life spent chasing fish.
