Searching for Blue-Eyed Trout

By: Mehelic, Larry

Publisher: New York, NY, iUniverse: 2002

Edition: 1st Edition

Seller ID: AB01047

ISBN: 0595261361

Condition: As New


(Synopsis) This is a collection of short stories written over the last ten years. There are no essays extolling fly fishing as a healer of mind and body. Neither will you find dry how to/where to details and you won't find a secret fly pattern guaranteed to catch fish on every cast. Instead there are anecdotes, tall tales, and fictional adventures. Some of the stories are humorous. A couple have more in common with science fiction and Mad Magazine than fly-fishing. A few take a healthy swipe at fly-fishing dogma, while a bit of sarcasm drifts in and out of others. All, however, are just yarns ... View more info
