Review quote

"Robert Traver has brought back to angling literature the simple, honest strengths that lie in the sport itself: fun and the spirit of individualism. His words are as close to the truth as we trout freaks can come without pulling on our waders." - Lamar Underwood, Sports Afield "Traver in Trout Magic gives you that wonderful, relaxed, lazy, unhurried, and unflustered, comfortable 'old shoe' feeling, page after page, adding up to a book so captivating to read that you really feel there should be some way to learn to hum or whistle it." - Arnold Gingrich"show more
