In these pages you will find a compendium of fishing wisdom frequently funny and always insightful observations about the sport and it's followers. This book explores the fisherman's loose relationship with the truth. It takes a look at the strange habits and behaviors of anglers(particularly fly-fishers), their fetish for gear and their long-suffering wives. You'll find that fishermen have opinions about everything: who they are, when they should go fishing and why they go in the first place. And they know it's not the catching that's imortant-it's the time to worship in the church of fishing, the way the sprot makes them whole that keeps them coming back. The Wisdom of Fishing is full of laughs and has some food for thought where on can find satisfaction in being part of the family of anglers.
