Overview

Dream Fish and Road Trips is a brilliant new collection of fly-fishing stories from a man who has been fortunate enough to live in two angling meccas - Alaska and Montana - and who has traveled the world in search of fly-fishing adventures, from Christmas Island to Siberia.With writing both perceptive and disarmingly simple, hilarious and informative, Thomas takes us along to some of the world's great places, fishing for species as regal as Alaska's king salmon, as humble as a Missouri River walleye, and as mysterious as the red weke - a small, possibly psychoactive goatfish of great ceremonial significance to native Hawaiians. If Hunter S. Thompson took up fly fishing, he'd eventually find Don Thomas. Here's a book for all fly fishers itching to breakout of civilization. (6 1/4 X 9 1/4, 196 pages, illustrations)
