The author sheds light on a passion that will drive its practitioners to rouse themselves well before sunrise and return home well after dark with nothing for the frying pan; endure driving rain, freezing temperatures, insect bites, and body bruises in the name of amusement. Fly fishers will understand and budding fly fishers may find good reason to give the sport a try.
Why I Fly Fish captures the life lessons that fly-fishing aficionados have learned from their favorite pursuit. As always, Santella was able to interview top-notch contributors, including: Bill Ford (CEO of Ford Motor Company), Donald Trump, Jr (son of THE DON), Conway Bowman (host of several fly fishing TV programs), Lefty Kreh (the world's best known fly fisherman), James Williamson (lead guitarist for IGGY POP and THE STOOGES), Henry Winkler (yes, the Fonz). With personal photographs provided by the contributors themselves Why I Fly Fish is an inspirational and personal reflection on a beloved sport and pastime.
