    DescriptionThe only thing that passionate anglers like better than hooking into "the big one" is telling their friends about it afterwards. With "Fifty Favorite Fly-Fishing Tales", author Chris Santella invites some of the living legends of fly-fishing to share some of their favourite fly-fishing stories culled from their experiences. These tales take us from the caves of Gunung Buda in Borneo where Ralph Cutter casts in darkness for blind catfish to the wilds of the Alaskan Peninsula, where J.W. Smith boxes with grizzly bears to protect his tent camp. Tales range from the comical (fly-fishing for crocodiles in Cuba) to the poignant (watching a type-A father connect with his neglected son through the quest for a wary rainbow trout in Colorado). Combined, the tales reflect the rich experience of fly-fishing, and how its metaphors extend beyond the river to touch our lives. Rich photography helps bring the people and places to life on the page.
