City Fishing

Fly fishermen dream of getting away, of sneaking off to a remote mountain stream or virgin cay, where there is no noise, no traffic, no skyline.

Most of the time that's not possible. Most of the time you have to fish where you can, when you can, because you can't not fish. So you find waters where you are, and sometimes the wildest fishing happens right in your backyard, or down the street, or in the city you happen to be visiting.

In City Fishing some of fly fishing's most gifted writers share experiences in Manhattan, London, Tokyo and Paris. In a manmade lake in the Minnesota suburbs, a park pond in New Jersey, a fountain pool on a college campus in the deep South, in suspect rivers within sight of factories in Buffalo, Oakland and Augusta, Maine.

This unorthodox collection reveals what all true fishermen understand: good fishing is to be had anywhere you can find it.

"Be sure in casting, that your fly fall first into the water, for if the line fall first, it scares or frightens the fish..." -

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
