Written by Ed Moses
“This may be the best book on fishing I’ve ever read.”—Patrick McManus
This brilliant memoir is to fishing what M. Scott Peck’s Golf and the Spirit is to golf. Moses, in a battered canoe with his son, shares stories like any good fishing guide–about water, fish and fishermen, childhood in America, fathers and sons, life and death.It’s a pocket-sized meditation on the glories of being alive and doing what you love. Whether practicing the art of catch-and-release fishing, conjuring up the past, or taking his father’s ashes on one final river ride,Moses writes about what makes us human and how the passion of fishing keeps him from falling victim to the clockwork agenda of our times.
“Ed Moses knows fishing from childhood up and from the heart out. This is just plain good writing and story telling. It’s the next best thing to actually going fishing.”—Paul Quinnett, author of Darwin’s Bass
Ed Moses lives in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. He has published three novels and continues to fish the Susquehanna River, which remains as beautiful as ever.
