Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
From the highly acclaimed author of Ninety-two in the Shade and Cloudbursts comes a collection of alternately playful and exquisite essays borne of a lifetime spent fishing. The forty pieces in The Longest Silence--including seven collected here for the first time--take the reader from the tarpon of Florida to the salmon of Iceland, from the bonefish of Mexico to the trout of Montana. They introduce characters as varied as a highly literate Canadian frontiersman and a devoutly Mormon river guide and address issues ranging from the esoteric art of tying flies to the enduring philosophy of a seventeenth-century angler to the trials of the aging fisherman. Both reverent and hilarious and infused with a deep experience of wildlife and the outdoors. The Longest Silence sets the heart pounding for a glimpse of moving water and demonstrates waht dedication to sport reveals about life.
Subject: Fishing.
