Fishing the Northwest: An Angler's Reader

Category: Sports: Fishing

Author: Glen Love

Copyright/published Year: 2000 by Oregon State

ISBN: 0870714813

Binding: Cloth

Fishing the Northwest collects stories and essays by twenty-two of the best angling writers in the region. Veteran flyfisher Glen Love has combed the vast literature on angling to create an exciting blend of subjects and styles that puts readers in the water next to fishing authors of great renown as well as noteworthy newer voices. Included are famous early writers like Zane Grey, who frequented Northwest rivers, and Roderick Haig-Brown, who defined angling literature for the region. Also spotlighted is a new wave of excellent writing that has exploded in the Northwest over the past two decades, calling on a host of gifted authors like Ted Leeson and Jessica Maxwell--one of several women who prove that it's no longer just a man's preserve.

The book ranges from Alaska to the Rogue River in southern Oregon, the Olympic Mountains and Vancouver Island to the Continental Divide in Montana. From the advice of angling eminence Enos Bradner to the spirited fiction of Ken Kesey, from Robin Carey's account of getting acquainted with a new river to Lorian Hemingway's first fly-fishing adventure, this is the ultimate reader for anyone who, in Norman Maclean's famous words, is "haunted by waters."

This book is new.
