Traveling by helicopter, kayak, ship or houseboat, on lakes, rivers, oceans and everglades, he has visited five continents and over 20 countries following his primary passion: fly-fishing. But, as with any epic quest, the adventuremade up of wild stories, salty characters, breathtaking settings and close callsis often more rewarding than the slippery goal itself. In Waters Far and Near, Charles Gaines presents a collection of essays that each begin in pursuit of a fish, but ultimately wind through back roads, volcanic landscapes, game reserves and remote villages, taking the reader on expeditions that reach far beyond the bait and tackle. Along the way, he weaves in historical context, environmental concerns, and vividly detailed portraits of the fellow adventurers and guides who share his obsession for the sport.About the Author:Charles Gaines is the author of the National Book Award finalist Stay Hungry and the international non-fiction bestseller Pumping Iron as well as being a life long sportsman and outdoor adventurer.
