One of the best book descriptions I have ever read:
"Howell Raines has gone fly fishing with presidents of the United States and legends of the sport, as well as relatives, childhood friends, and his two sons. Casting deep into the waters of his tumultuous and momentous life - his storied career at the New York Times, his painful divorce, his seven-year feud with his father, his memorable friendship with fisherman/philosopher Richard C. Blalock - Raines offers his now-classic meditation on the "disciplined, beautiful, and unessential activity" of fly fishing and the challenges and opportunities of middle age. A witty and profound celebration of life's transitions and the serene pleasures of the outdoors, Raines's memories and observations offer wisdom for the younger man, comfort for the older man, and rare insight for women into the often puzzling male psyche. "Hear me, my brothers," Raines says. "Anything is possible in the life of a man if he lives long enough. Even adulthood."
Courtesy of Amazon.com, you can find this book in paperback for $13.42 or used for as little as $4. I have personally read this book twice and it is my personal favorite. An absolute must read for anyone over 40 who loves to fly fish (and has been married with children). Idaho fly fishing rocks.
Tight lines, bent rods and screaming reels forever.
