Riassunto: A classic that captures Hall's enthusiasm for angling and love of angling waters.
Dal retro di copertina:
Fishing a Highland Stream was originally published more than thirty years ago under the title How to Fish a Highland Stream. But it has substantially transcended its "how to" genre. It is a remarkably intimate and affecting memoir of a thoughtful man's long relationship with a river - a true classic of fly fishing that reaches out to everyone who practices the sport.Hall loves the Truim, "a hard little burn," more each season that he fishes it. But he also loves Dalwhinnie, the nearby village, the rugged country through which the river flows, the lochs that lie near it, and the unique inhabitants of the region, with whom he develops close relationships. What we have, then, is the finest kind of memoir: the enchanting portrait of a place of remote beauty, a fascinating river that reveals it secrets only after much effort, and the account of an inveterate dry-fly fisherman who revels in the experience of a river filled with a haunting, "lonely magic."This book is an absolute delight.
