After tripping, overtopping my waders and becoming terminally tangled in the logs and snags in the bottom of a hole I should have known about, I was startled by a voice.
"Fishing has an odd way of calming one's soul," said the old man standing midstream where no one had been when I fell.-- from "The Old Man in the Riffle," in Fish with What You Find by Jim Gilsdorf.
This is a collection of articles, previously published in the Gilsdorf's local Trout Unlimited chapter newsletter, about fly fishing and fly tying. I do neither, but Gilsdorf tells great stories and the book has charmed me.
This would make a perfect Christmas present for any fly fisher.
