Book Description:
Upriver and Downstream gathers seventy columns about fishing from freshwater to saltwater, from small ponds to the Great Lakes, from the Pacific Northwest to post Soviet Russia written for the Outdoors column of the New York Times. Contributors include such celebrated names as Nick Lyons, Thomas McGuane, Nelson Bryant, Peter Kaminsky, Ernest Schweibert, and Robert H. Boyle. Short, evocative, informative, and entertaining, here are pieces about fly fishing for wild brook trout, bait fishing for striped bass, casting into tailwaters, or angling in midwinter. The settings range from Hudson River piers to the Florida Everglades, from Iceland to the Amazon, and the fish include everything from the common sunfish to the esoteric paddlefish. These engaging essays remind us of what fishing is all about: companionship and solitude, challenge and relaxation, nature and technology, from coast to coast to around the globe.Rich with the particulars of water, light, and air, as well as a keen awareness of, as Verlyn Klinkenborg puts it in his introduction, what is happening out there in the deep, in the shallows, at the end of the line, these reflections and recollections beautifully capture the natural world and one of life s most challenging, perennial pursuits.From the Hardcover edition.
