Description
When you read the tales in True Love and the Woolly Bugger, where trout, tarpon, and bonefish are skillfully interwoven with all the experiences -- funny, happy, and sad -- that beset or bless anglers. Dave Ames writes about completely unforgettable characters: a laid-back Bahamian fishing guide who stalks "gourmet" food; a tattooed, motorcycle-riding, fly-fishing beauty who teaches the hero a thing or two; his perverse and driven fishing buddies -- who continually push the envelope of sanity and good judgment. The signature chapter, "True Love," takes you to the Bob Marshall Wilderness to fish for arctic grayling and cutthroat trout, and to learn about lifelong love. "The Woolly Bugger" is an odyssey through three decades of fishing and hard living, from the author's preadolescent bait drowning to his truly unusual conversion to flies and catch-and-release. In "A Light Green Rain," the hero discovers some rarified Pacific Northwest salmon fishing and a strange St. Paddy's Day party. Other stories touch on everything from the dubious pleasures of exotic travel to the life-threatening excitement of tarpon fishing. True Love and the Woolly Bugger views fishing and life through a different lens. It will captivate you with remarkable stories, remarkably told, and leave you asking for more. Book jacket.
