The Unreasonable Virtue of Fly Fishing


Don't forget these...

National Outdoor Book Award Winner for Outdoor Literature

“Mark Kurlansky employs his fact-packed writing style to braid the history of fly fishing and the fish, his personal life of fishing from boyhood pond to rivers around the globe, and literary and ethics perspectives on the sport into ‘A Good Line,’ which will draw in those already enamored of fly fishing and at least tantalize those puzzled by the attraction of going fly fishing.” - Bowling Green Daily News

“Mr. Kurlansky is a veteran writer. Over the course of 34 books―including bestsellers on such seemingly mundane subjects as salt, cod and paper―he has come to be known for his ability to weave history, philosophy and personal experience into compelling narratives. His latest, The Unreasonable Virtue of Fly Fishing, is on a subject that is clearly dear to his heart. . . . The book offers fascinating chapters on the history of fly fishing and tackle―flies, rods, reels, lines, even waders. . . . The fishing trivia Mr. Kurlansky cites is often marvelous.” - Wall Street Journal
