Fish stories are like opinions. Everybody's got one. The difference is, people actually enjoy a good fish story. In his first book, Mark Usyk sets out to prove that he not only has a couple, but that he knows how to tell them as well. But are they really all fish stories? Or is he trying to unlock the mysteries of the universe as only an angler can?
From his time as a cell tower climber with a bunch of fly rods packed alongside his climbing gear, to his days spent at a grungy and thankless production factory job indoors and all but cut off from the great outdoors, to memories of simpler days and the ones that got away, here are 61 short stories told by a self-proclaimed marginal fly fisherman. Whether they're about fishing or something more is up to you to decide.

About the Author

Mark Usyk is a self proclaimed marginal fly fisherman. Unconventional, at times unstable, undeniably a fly fishing junkie. Mark calls Upstate NY home and the Oriskany Creek his home stream, where the next story is almost certainly always waiting around the next bend. He frequently points his Jeep an hour north into the Adirondacks in search of brook trout and the answers to life's toughest questions.

He writes a weekly blog on the JP Ross Fly Rods website and also sits on the board of directors for Trout Power, a nonprofit which focuses on the preservation of wild and native trout in NY State, and specifically the Adirondacks.

An ex-hotrod fabricator, ex-blacksmith, ex-cell tower climber, and presently a soul searching fly fisherman with a taste for telling fishing stories in his own unique style, his stories are sure to make you access your own life and ask the most important question in the universe... Do you fish enough?
