Finalist in the 2009 Colorado Book Awards16 short stories about fly fishing:The Specter at Grizzly HackleUte Creek PassTying the Whip FinishFor the Sport of ItThe View from Buffalo MountainThe Home PoolPlus 10 moreSixteen short stories evoke the passion of fly fishing and those who are entranced by the waters. Ducker dedicates this collection to his favorite "uncounted mountain lakes and twice as many unnamed streams" where he finds the inspiration for his fiction. His colorful characters include a cantankerous old man who refuses to leave his home and brings the sophisticated city developers to their knees, a young wife who outfishes and outsmarts the staid "good old boys" fishing club, a Hassidic scholar who astounds his fishing companions with his beginner's luck, and a father who can only understand his son when they share a rare afternoon of trout fishing. The enchantment of the water and the land fill these stories and remind readers of the magic of fishing their own home pools.
