Year of the Raven
An angler's reflections on Alberta's most frustrating stream
Reflections on a year fly fishing for trout in the North Fork of the Raven (aka Stauffer Creek) in Alberta. This is not a 'how-to' book; in fact, it may be the first how-not-to book you've ever read about fishing. One moment it's lyrical, the next it screams with frustration.
Part memoir, part novel, the author calls it 'fly fiction'.
"We cast a fly (itself a ruse) to deceive a fish-an animal that, literally, lives within a lie. If it really exists and is caught, we release it and are left without physical evidence. It may be a small psychological step to fabricate the entire process. What, in the final analysis, is the difference between memory and imagination anyway?"
