FIELD AND STREAM: TRAVER ON FISHING Traver on Fishing collects the best that the old judge wrote about his favorite sport - tall tales, strange happenings and true lore, including his famous 'Testament of a Fisherman'. This book is a marvelous catch of wit, wisdom, and anecdote sure to delight everyone who enjoys a master storyteller, who just happens to write here about his wonderful world of trout fishing. His experiences made for two memorable books and numerous essays. He is recognized as among the best writers of his generation. No one wrote with more warm, downhome affection for flyfishing than the late Robert Traver. He especially loved fishing for his beloved and bejeweled native brook trout on Michigan's Upper Peninsula, mostly on what he called "Frenchman's Pond," near Ishpeming.The tales he told made two memorable books, Trout Madness and Trout Magic; text for a brilliant story in photographs (Anatomy of a Fisherman); and numerous essays and stories in a wide variety of magazines. His prose gives us, as Arnold Gingrich has said, "that wonderful, relaxed, lazy, unhurried and unflustered, comfortable 'old shoe' feeling, page after page."WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:"Traver is required reading for every fly angler. Highly recommended." - Library JournalABOUT THE AUTHOR:Robert Traver was the pseudonym for John D. Voelker, who was a Michigan Supreme Court Justice, author of the bestselling book Anatomy of a Murder, and several popular books on fishing. ISBN: 1-933309-05-9 publish date: 06/14/2006
