Bright Rivers chronicles the angling passions and frustrations of one of fly-fishing's greatest men of letters.
A city dweller trapped in the complexities of modern life, Nick Lyons has always found solace in his pilgrimages to great rivers. It is there that he fishes for trout, and in Bright Rivers, Lyons recounts the sometimes moving, sometimes hilarious experiences of his expeditions to the Delaware, Beaverkill, Madison, Big Hole, and Yellowstone rivers, sharing reminiscences of trout taken, released, and sometimes lost. No one writes better about not catching fish than Nick Lyons, and perhaps no one writes better about angling, period. This edition includes a new foreword by the author.
From a richly textured diary of a summer in the Catskills to moving recollections of fly-fishing in Montana, Lyons brilliantly captures the wonderful tension between gray streets and bright rivers.
"Nick Lyons enters the select company of the finest writers in the genre with his new book about his experiences on the ‘bright rivers’ he has fished from the Catskills to Montana." (Publishers Weekly)
