Publisher's Summary

Fly fishermen everywhere will enjoy these varied, witty, and engaging adventures by one of America’s finest outdoor writers. There is a long section on trout fishing called "Brookies, Browns, and Bows", and another on the challenges and excitement of saltwater fly fishing, and an exciting group of memoirs about fishing near home and in far-flung and often exotic places - like the Minipi, Bighorn, and Norfolk rivers, where the trout can beggar the imagination, and where frustration can be the occupational hazard. Trout Eyes is a love letter to the fish we pursue and insects they eat and the waters in which they live.


Audible Editor Reviews

It is no surprise that fly fishermen treasure William Happly; his witty writings on angling find insights that embrace human experiences in general. However, Happly is no dull philosopher. Through narrator Donald Corren's vibrant performance, Happly's wit and passion for angling come through in stories that include his encounters with eccentric animal rights activists and the challenges of saltwater fishing. Corren ably uses his expressive voice to highlight Happly's perceptive thoughts on the connections between writing and fly fishing. Happly notes, "Writers go fishing for fun, sure. But they also go fishing for stories." In this audiobook, listeners will be satisfied to find that Happly has quite a good catch.

Hidden Gems of Fishing

Great story of fishing with awesome wisdom on tactics and techniques. A few mispronunciations (Slough Creek pronounced as "slow" Creek).

Very awesome ending to the book! The epilogue ties together the why of fishing: the methods, live of nature, and the relationships we make.
