Fishing the Northwest collects stories and essays by ì twenty-two of the best angling writers in the region. Veteran ì flyfisher Glen Love has combed the vast literature on angling to ì create an exciting blend of subjects and styles that puts readers ì in the water next to fishing authors of great renown as well as ì noteworthy newer voices. Included are famous early writers like ì Zane Grey, who frequented Northwest rivers, and Roderick ì Haig-Brown, who defined angling literature for the region. Also ì spotlighted is a new wave of excellent writing that has exploded ì in the Northwest over the past two decades, calling on a host of ì gifted authors like Ted Leeson and Jessica Maxwell--one of ì several women who prove that it's no longer just a man's ì preserve.
The book ranges from Alaska to the Rogue River in southern ì Oregon, the Olympic Mountains and Vancouver Island to the ì Continental Divide in Montana. From the advice of angling ì eminence Enos Bradner to the spirited fiction of Ken Kesey, from ì Robin Carey's account of getting acquainted with a new river to ì Lorian Hemingway's first fly-fishing adventure, this is the ì ultimate reader for anyone who, in Norman Maclean's famous words, ì is "haunted by waters."
