About the Author

Frank Soos, a native of Virginia, is the author of "Unified Field Theory," which won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. He is a professor emeritus of English at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks.


Where does [this] book belong? Carried in a fishing creel for streamside reading. On a night stand or a coffee table. Anywhere within easy reach of anglers and nonanglers caught up in the currents of a fast culture and looking for lovely, reflective moments of grace.

--Eugene Register-Guard

A vivid account . . . Lays open in the hand as neatly as an elegant English fly box and would handily fit in the outside pocket of a fishing vest.


[A] wry, graceful book . . . one of the most tellingly illustrated books I have seen recently.

--Gray's Sporting Journal

Soos combines fishing and philosophy in a graceful style that will appeal to wide variety of readers.

--Georgia Library Quarterly

Captivating essays--on living simply and living well.

--International Angler

A beautiful volume--with strong, original essays.

--Atlanta Journal-Constitution

This book would appeal to philosophical fly fishermen, but to a wider audience as well--particularly individuals who relish the idea of a reflective life.

--Baton Rouge Advocate

Bamboo Fly Rod Suite is interesting and engaging. The linkages among the pieces, the thematic echoes from one essay to another, and the concentric meditations that grow outward from the central fact of the bamboo fly rod are thoughtfully imagined and deftly executed.

--Ted Leeson "author of The Habitat of Rivers "
