Read full description of the books:
Writing with the same mastery and insight that have won his praise for his fiction, Richards brings to life a community centered on fly fishing--a sport that has become, for many, a way of life. Weaving together tales of the guides and poachers, the "sports" and the city slickers, Richards pays tribute to all who have shared the joy of fishing. From his first fishing trip at age four to his endless search for the next great fishing pool, Richards takes us beyond fly fishing and offers thoughts and insight about nature, perseverance, reverence, friendship, history, memory, and the changes the modern world has brought. LINES ON THE WATER teems with wisdom, humor, and most of all, passion.
-LINES ON THE WATER won Canada's Governor General's Award.
-Top ten bestseller on the Book Sense Fishing List.
-The Publication of Richards' novel The Bay of Love and Sorrows this June is sure to raise his profile and increase his readership.
-Paperback is the natural format for this book--perfect for all fly fishers to toss in their backpacks for their next fishing trip.
- Hardcover ISBN: 1-55970-634-1
