"For years, Nick Lyons has been one of the most popular fishing writers in America. Now, in Spring Creek, he has created his masterpiece." "Spring Creek is one of those rare places where the trout are as long as your arm but also exceedingly difficult to catch. Lyons recounts a month's adventures on this river, a time in which he explores its secrets and confronts its greatest challenges. At first he catches little. Then, slowly, he acquires the various and special skills and disciplines necessary to take the large, wary brown trout of this extraordinary river." "Spring Creek is the record of halcyon days astream. It is a fisherman's book, drawing a rare portrait of an angler actually learning to fish more wisely, filled with battles between angler and trout, a few epic victories, and even more epic defeats. Spring Creek is a richly humorous and perceptive account of an angler's passion for his sport - and a book all fishermen will cherish."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
