With humor and compassion, author J. H. Hall chronicles the joys and tribulations of Maine fly fishermen, their loved ones, and their adversaries. Hall's characters share a passion for fly-fishing'their lifeline'and an indifference to most of society's other conventions. Whether building an indoor trout stream, robbing a bank, or waging mischief against a market-savvy, modernist guide, these characters gallantly struggle to preserve a way of life and a part of Maine that is rapidly disappearing. Praise for previously published works by J. H. Hall: Paradise: Stories of a Changing Chesapeake: ?Hall's portrayal glows like a watercolor. He mobilizes his language in quick, sure strokes: subdued, taut, winsome by turns.' ?Ramon de Rosas, Maine In Print ?Michael Crichton is not the only doctor-turned-writer to come down the pike in the past few years?In fact, I would'say he's not even the best. The author I've just discovered [J. H. Hall] is considerably better? ?Cheryl Nowak, Eastern Shore News Selling Fish: Stories from a Fishing Life: ?Jim Hall has always been dead serious about fishing.
