Gone Fishin'
Ruminations on Fly Fishing
by William G. Tapply 
 
One of the premier outdoor writers takes a close look at the how's, where's, and, primarily, the why's of his favorite pastime.

Here is longtime fly-fishing writer William G. Tapply on the big and small pleasures of fishing, from fly tying to hunting the big ones. In “Extreme Angling,” Tapply dismisses the idea of fly fishing as “The Quiet Sport,” with tales of grizzly attacks, rogue logs, and big water. In “Hexed,” he finds out that his local stream — overstocked and overfished — offers a lot more than he ever suspected. In “Paying Homage,” he describes the mystical joys of the Beaverkill in upstate New York. In “Seven for the Road,” he gives readers a peek at some of the most important things he stows in his tackle bag, including the books he carries on every trip.
