More About On the Water by Guy De LA Valdene
 
 
 
Overview
From the acclaimed author of Fragrance of Grasscomes a meditation onwater andnature, fishingand growing older.On the Wateris agorgeously writtencollection of essays that all take place on or near the water and pay tribute to the flora and fauna associated with thoseecosystems. There are essays about the finer points of tickling rainbow trout in the streams of Normandy, and of eagles and ospreys fishing for basswhile barely breaking the surface of the water. There are stories ofdroughts and floods, of dogs and boats, of worms and rattlesnakes and even of catching and cooking soft-shell turtles that taste like osso-bucco.There is fishing and diving in the Bahamas, tarpon fishing in the Florida Keys, and fly fishing for sailfish in Central America. And there are larger-than-life personalities that are bigger than the fish tales they tell On the Wateris a finely honed and well crafted collection of tales for the true sportsman and makes for a perfect companion volume to la Valdene s celebrated collection of essays on hunting."
