Trout Quintet

Trout Quintet

Steve Raymond

Science Fiction & Fantasy

This is a new book from the Pacific Northwest's finest angling writer.There is an abundance of literature on the pleasure and wonder of fly fishing. The themes are familiar and well traveled: ruminations on aging and the passage of time; musings on marriage and balancing the love of friends and families with that of fishing; reflections on the need for companionship versus the quiet beauty and solitude of fly fishing.Now, Steve Raymond takes these well-explored subjects and views them through the lens of fiction. With flowing prose, the five stories in Trout Quintet touch on some of the more salient topics that the flyfisherman faces, from the problem of overfishing to the sometimes nonsensical rules that anglers must contend with. From the story of a dying man who comes back to life as a rainbow trout to the tale of a young boy and his lucky hat, Trout Quintet is a refreshing evocation of the sport that so many women and men love.
