A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing


A high mountain lake in the Colorado Rockies is the point of departure for these wide-ranging stories of dark adventure. From the tidal waters of Nantucket to the ancient cobblestones of Europe, from the Orinoco Basin to Cuba and the high-altitude summit of an Andean volcano, A FIELD GUIDE TO MURDER AND FLY FISHING speaks to the inextricability of exterior and interior experience and to the conflicting magnetism of solitude versus friendship, brotherhood, and love.
