This book is very good. Most of the stories are very poignant. When I go to a movie and the storyline makes me cry, that's a great movie! When I am reading a book, and the story in the book makes me cry, that's a TRIPLE great book! Being a fly fisherman, I understood more of the terminology than if I were not. I recommend this book to anyone, whether a fisherman or not!
