This offbeat and meditative manifesto about fly fishing collects a variety of author Nick Lyons' diverse essays and articles on the subject into a single audiobook, reflective and hilarious by turns.
Voice actor Nicholas Hormann does a fantastic job of capturing the sense of place, time, and true passion for a beloved activity which Lyons works so hard to communicate in his writing. Hormann is a calm performer, and evokes very effectively the elegant humor that dapples this collection of essays like light across the water of the river at dawn, wearing your waders, waiting for the fish to bite.
By turns canny, hilarious, inquiring, and philosphical, A Flyfisher's World is a rich collection of articles and essays by one of America's most popular writers about fly-fishing. Nick Lyons writes of a revealing fishing trip he had with his grown son, odd characters he has met while pursuing his passion, reflections he had from a hospital bed, and more.
What a great window into the growth of a fly fishermen. I did not want it to end.
