(Synopsis) More than just a collection of fishing stories, in Strong is the Current the author struggles to find meaning in life after the tragic death of his 23-year old daughter due to a brain tumor in 2016. At one point during his family’s ordeal, Joel promised his daughter that he would write a book in her honor. Through his informal writing style Joel shares with the reader his grief and his reflections as he fly fishes the Catskills or pursues gar, bowfin, bass, and northern pike in the tributaries of Lake Ontario where he lives. Seeking solace in the outdoors, fishing becomes his medication and his time on the water provides meditation time to put this tragedy into perspective. The book has humor, but also sadness that can bring the reader to tears. Strong is the Current is a wonderful tribute to the author’s daughter and could provide anyone of us who has lost someone special a pathway through the darkness. Joel’s openness and willingness to share his struggle is inspirational.
