Glad this was short, 'cause turning each page gave me a good idea of how Sisyphus must feel. 👎

Such a great book! A light-hearted story that will have you laughing out loud, literally. Loved this!

There's no doubt that I'll be picking up more of Harrison's work!

A book that will make you want to walk into the woods with a sandwich and a fly rod, and forget the complications of this world. A simple life? Wouldn't that be nice?

Received as a gift back in the eighties. Never read as I guess I was too busy fishing. Now I rarely fish so have more time to read.
Enjoyable and relaxing.

I have not read this one. But have read others by him. Some are great some not so much.

Interesting critters.
Almost unbelievable how many crabs were harvested in  "The Bay" back in the day.
One of my favorite past times in my younger years, and still enjoy picking a few now and then.

It's not about fishing but this pandemic lock down is giving me time to catch up on books I've neglected over the years. Presently reading this classic by Robert Ruark. He has a way of putting words together that make reading his books "page turners".

So after my foray into the Library of Congress Digital collection, I recalled this book about Edwards Curtis and his photography of the Native Americans, that I picked up at an airport on one of my last corporate trips to Calafornia. The photo of Three Horses is one of his photos.




ex - I'm not going to live with you through one more fishing season!

me -There's a season?

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

Published 68 years ago and still pertinent today. Sad.

Made me laugh, made me think, and made me cry.
Three things Jimmy V suggested doing everyday to help get through this life. Good advice in my opinion.

Enjoyable.
The gist of BD's philosophy sorta put me in the mind of Thoreau's Walden. Only 100 years later and BD was a tad rougher around the edges.

I've been on a Sean stranahan mystery kick. On book number 4. Started with the royal wulff murders. Easy reads that I have found enjoyable..
