American Waters: Fly-Fishing Journeys of a Native Son
Peter Kaminsky (Author)
DescriptionPeter Kaminsky didn't know a fly rod from a hot rod back in 1974 when, while vacationing in the Florida Keys, he landed his bait right under the nose of a 35-pound grouper. At that life-changing moment, he was hooked on fishing. In the three decades since, the "New York Times" outdoors columnist has fished his way across his native land, discovering America-and himself-through his passion for angling.
In "American Waters," Kaminsky shares in lyrical prose his fly-fishing journeys around what he calls "the fishingest country on earth." From the Ozarks to the Everglades, from the Brooklyn waterfront to Yellowstone, from the bountiful riptides of Montauk Point to the spring creeks of Montana, Kaminsky has fished the best. Whether he is pursuing tarpon in the Marquesas, smallmouth in the Ozarks, or the albacore of Cape Fear, the fishing tales recounted here convey the simple joy, timelessness, grace, and beauty that are to be found casting a fly rod.
