Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a well-written memoir about David Richards' immersion into the life on fly fishing as he grows up on the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada. I picture the opening lines being read by that deep Garrison-Keller like voice at the opening of a movie and the book maintains this poetic flavor throughout.

Richards starts his book in his childhood with his initial fishing experiences with his brother, friends, uncles and other figures. He discusses how having a lame left are and foot affected his fishing and then he moves on very well.

The cast of characters from Peter, to Mr. Simms to Henry, the poacher-turned-warden, is immediately recognizable from my fishing travels in the Maritime Provinces. The characters from his life are presented in all of their flaws, talents and humanity. His love for the river and area also shine through in their descriptions and sadness for how they have changed.

The stories move forward in time but flow back and forth as needed like memories that are being recalled as they flow in the authors mind. This a great book for those who love fishing and or for those who just love to read a good memoir.

Format: Audible Audio Edition
Most likely if I had read the book instead of listening to the Audible Audio version of this book I would have rated it 4 stars. The author recounts his often humorous and sometimes poignant tales of flyfishing near the Miramichi River in Canada. Most of the fishing involves Salmon with some trout fishing in the mix. The narrator had a very distracting cadence that I never got used to though I listened to the entire book. My advice would be to read the book and skip the Audible version.

Enjoyed the book and look forward to being out on the water. A story about fishing but also about the author's determination and strength when faced with challenges.
