Have you ever been so passionate about something that it occupied your every waking moment? In his latest collection of essays, celebrated writer and lifelong angler James R. Babb reflects on his preoccupation with fishing-- one so strong that it often keeps him awake--and further recounts many of his most memorable adventures from a life spent casting flies across the globe two dozen chapters on varying aspects of the sport. In "Roamin' the Gloaming," Babb hilariously comments on some of the peculiar idioms of his chosen passion. The aptly titled "Snide and Prejudice" reflects on the companionship, friendships, and occasional animosities that arise from fishing with others. And in "Simple Gifts," Babb muses on the eternal bane and gift of all flyfishermen—the weather. 304 pgs Hardcover

In the vein of great writers such as Mark Twain, Annie Dillard, and John Gierach, Babb's poignant prose and witty observations are true testaments to the unparalleled wit of an American master.
