Product Overview

A collection of sixteen short stories about 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 out-fishes and outsmarts the staid "good old boys" fishing club, a Hassidic rabbi 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.
