From the author of the universally acclaimed Trout Diaries (2011) comes a captivating new volume of fly-fishing adventures in New Zealand, artfully illustrated with ink and charcoal sketches.
Join Derek Grzelewski as he explores the waters of his trout bohemia — both famous and deathly secret — and meet the passionate, expert anglers he encounters and fishes with along the way. Some are locals, others come from overseas, but all share and reaffirm his conviction that, when it comes to wild trophy trout in magnificent settings, there is no place in the world quite like New Zealand.
With his irrepressible curiosity and sense for good stories, Grzelewski hunts for trophy trout in seemingly impossible places, gleans secret strategies and tricks and relearns skills he once thought mastered, and brings it all to life with rare honesty and eloquence. In his narrative, in which the trout are secondary but most important characters, Grzelewski defies the boundaries of angling literature and, by way of fly-fishing, takes his readers on the most important journey of all — the journey of the soul.
