9780615706795: The Way of the River: My Journey of Fishing, Forgiveness and Spiritual Recovery

2012 Books and Pals Reader's Choice Award nominee for best memoir.

The Way of the River is a collection of memoirs and autobiographical stories that reflect Randy Kadish's long journey of fly fishing and spiritual recovery. The journey, often difficult, often gratifying, began when he finally admitted to himself that he couldn't communicate, and that his life had become unmanageable. Then, after he asked for help, he looked back into his life and relived the deep pain and loss that began during his very traumatic childhood. To soothe himself with the beauty of the outdoors, he turned to fishing. As he struggled to come to terms with his past, and then with the loss of his parents, he wrote about his journey of recovery, especially of how he was made better by many of the people he met along the way, like Carlos, a friendly immigrant and skilled bait fisherman who seemingly appeared out of nowhere and then helped Randy see people in a more sympathetic light.

Soon  Randy's memoirs appeared in many publications including, The FlyFisher, FlyFishing & Tying Journal, and Yale Anglers' Journal.

Finally, after an unexpected crisis, he found a surprising way to forgive and to connect to the good in the world.

The fishing in this collection takes place in and near New York City, including the streams of Westchester, the East and Hudson Rivers, and the lakes of Central and Prospect Parks.

About the Author:

I'm a native New Yorker. After a good deal of disappointment, I gave up writing. Then my mother passed away, and I found that fishing helped ease my grief. Almost accidently, I wrote and sold a fishing article. Afterwards, my articles and memoirs appeared in many publications, including The Flyfisher, Flyfishing & Tying Journal and Yale Anglers' Journal.

To me, much of my writing is about how the challenges of fishing and the beauty of the outdoors helped me come to terms with loss and with a world I can't always understand. In a sense, my writing is autobiographical, as it reflects my own gratifying, but at times, difficult journey of emotional and spiritual recovery.

On the long road of my journey, I slowly learned that, even when I don't have answers, I must strive to find forgiveness and self-worth and to connect to the good in the world. (This is how I define spirituality.) I therefore love books where the main characters struggle against inner and outer conflicts and then try to do what's right.

Review:

"Some wintertime reading anglers might enjoy ... I liked this one."
 - John Pitarresi, Utica Observer-Dispatch

"A fishing book worth reading on all levels. ... I wish I had more like these on my bookshelf."
 - Tradd Duggan, Fly Fish Addiction blog

"Overall, I definately enjoyed reading this book. ... I hardly put it down once I started reading."
- David Knapp, The Trout Zone blog
