Headwaters: The Adventures, Obsession and Evolution of a Fly Fisherman by Dylan Tomine
Dylan Tomine takes us to the far reaches of the planet-- Christmas Island , the Russian Arctic. Argentine Patagonia, Japan, Cuba, British Columbia-- in search of fish and adventure, with keen insight, a strong stomach and plenty of laughs along the way. Closer to home, he wades deeper into his beloved steelhead rivers of the Pacific Northwest and the politics of saving them. Tomine celebrates the joy―and pain―of exploration, fatherhood and the comforts of home waters from a vantage point well off the beaten path. Headwaters traces the evolution of a lifelong angler’s priorities from fishing to the survival of the fish themselves. It is a book of remarkable obsession, environmental awareness shaped by experience, and hope for the future. 6x9 inches, 256 pgs. Hardcover.
