Here’s a book that embraces yet transcends the fly-fisher’s world much as Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods transcends the hiker’s world. It is a journey to remote Labrador, to Alaska, Scotland, Ireland, the Florida Keys, to a Pepsi shack on the Catawba in the Carolinas, to a tackle shop no bigger than a rooster’s nest on 42nd Street, to Kettle Creek in Pennsylvania’s Forbidden Lands. It is suffused with the fragrance of Montecristos, the plumy sweetness of vintage Port, the sizzle of sirloins on a Coleman stove. Plus such unforgettable characters as Mr. Earp, a 100 percent West Virginian and 50 percent Cherokee; and Mr. Cotter, the quintessential NY cop turned fly-fishing gentleman.
