Summary
"From the first sentence, 'I come from a long line of river people, ' to the last, 'Bad luck to kill a moose bird, ' Wayne Curtis signals that this book occupies the territory of a classic, a lyrical memoir of a river and those who submit to its call. New Brunswick's Miramichi River is one of the most entrancing salmon rivers in the world. In Fishing the High Country, Curtis has created what can only be described as a river masterpiece, a lyrical record of time and place, of those who are drawn to its side and those who cast their lines into its waters. Drawing on his experience of life along the river -- as a boy, as a young man, and as a river guide among guides, Wayne Curtis crafts the compelling memoir of this place, a high country where he spins his tales, casts his flies, and fishes the river and woods for his stories. The Miramichi vibrates in Curtis's bones. His cast of characters are earthy, whimsical, and wise. His eye for the telling detail and his rooted understanding of lives lived humbly will captivate readers with its near mystical blend of the mysteries of fly fishing and the affections of the heart"--Provided by publisher's website
