Confessions of a Fly Fishing Addict

Front Cover
Grove/Atlantic, Incorporated, 1999 - Sports & Recreation - 215 pages
Nick Lyons has been called a "happy combination of angler-poet-romantic, " and nowhere is this -- and his compulsion to fish -- more in evidence than in Confessions of a Fly Fishing Addict. Bluegills, bluefish, snook, chub, brown trout, bass, and salmon are all explored, along with the discretely different experiences of fishing in small ponds, major Western rivers, English chalk streams, and no-name brooks. In the emotions it explores and records, Confessions of a Fly Fishing Addict is Lyons's broadest book.
