"The best book about fly-fishing to come along in some years."
—Verlyn Klinkenborg, Fly Rod & Reel
"A series of deeply moving essays on an American region by an angler with an eye for detail and a poet's way with the language. Camuto's first book reminds one of Annie Dillard, Edward Abbey, even Thoreau."
"A book that is both environmental journalism and literary celebration—both human history and natural history. Very few fishing writers can do all these things at once, and even fewer can do them as well as [Camuto] has."
"A work of homage to wild native brook trout."
—New York Times Book Review
"The kind of book you pull down from the shelf on a windy, cold January evening, after you've put another log on the fire and poured a big mug of coffee. It will move you onto a May trout stream in just a paragraph. . . . [Camuto's] look into the Blue Ridge Mountains goes well beyond the minimizing haze. He is as good a researcher and analyst as he is a writer."
"One of the best written fishing books that has crossed our desk in many years."
"This isn't your usual how-to book about what to buy, what to use, what prayer to say in order to win the Governor's Trophy. Rather, it concerns the experience of fishing as a relaxing, enjoyable recreation, without hoopla and tournaments. Get it at any bookstore. You'll find this small volume perfect for a pleasant fireside evening, especially if you are concerned about the future of angling."
