Donna Coomer sounds as if she knows a thing or two about fly fishing. Maybe it's because she hails from the Rocky Mountains with all those clear streams teeming with trout. SM
STEP, CAST, STEP, CAST!
It's not often in one book that you can learn about
the art of frying with lard, the intricasies of fly
fishing, the subtleties of Squantese, and just how
much you don't want to know about the Nucking Fuff
Stephen Morris captures it all with wit and style.
Some of it is happily predictable, but the rest
catches you with the timing of a perfect cast and
holds you right up to the release.
Morris has also included timely bits of information
concerning the effects of humanity on our oceans and
the life within it. Questions of what to do in the
next phase of one's life may be the overall theme
here, but not taking note of our effects on the Earth
may leave us with little or no choice, except how to
live on a planet constantly under siege by our own
