Synopsis:
With Steve Raymond's flowing prose, the five stories in Trout Quintet touch on some of the more salient topics that the fly fisherman faces, from the problem of overfishing to the sometimes nonsensical rules that anglers must contend with. From the story of a dying man who comes back to life as a rainbow trout to the tale of a young boy and his lucky hat, Trout Quintet is a refreshing evocation of the sport that so many women and men love. 6x9 inches, 200 pgs.

Editorial Reviews

“Few angler-authors can match the skill and insight of Steve Raymond . . .” —The New York Times

“Steve Raymond has been one of fly fishing’s finest writers longer than most of us have been fishing.” —Paul Schullery, author of Royal Coachman and American Fly Fishing: A History

“Raymond’s prose is direct, his commentary forthright, frankly opinionated, frequently funny, and not without cutting edges.” —Fly Rod & Reel

“In a genre whose longing for the old days and calls for better management are too often scolding and furious, Raymond offers a simpler and more graceful message: get out there and pay attention to the wonder of the water.” —Seattle Times.
