Summary

Ever wonder what the angler downstream of you catching fish in water you just fished is doing differently from you? Master angler and author Duane Redford delves into what the top 10% of anglers are seeing and doing differently from the fly fishing masses, and how they are consistently putting fish in the net in every situation. This work is a culmination of hundreds of hours on the river, observing and documenting insect, fish, and angler behaviors. It includes something for every level of angler from reading the obvious runs of the river to its subtle nuances; bug selection made simple, how to rig to attain a lively drift, recognizing and exploiting the X-Y-Z grids in a river run, tactics to get better now, and how to implement the Fly Fishers’ Formula while you locate and effectively fish your “quarter mile” of river. This book is a comfortable read that takes you with the author as he describes the techniques and applications derived from statistical information and observation, for successful fly fishing on any river, and it contains at least one “pearl on every page” to help any level angler get to the next mile marker on the journey to fly fishing wisdom. You are invited to catch more fish and find out what’s Hidden In Plain View.

    An “artful and compassionate” collection of personal essays, travel writing, dispatches, and book reviews from the author of Laughing in the Hills (Time).  An Angle on the World is a brilliant tribute to Bill Barich’s extraordinary range as a writer. Gathering together more than thirty years of work, this book addresses such diverse subjects as a murder trial in the Caribbean, a visit to a juju doctor in Nigeria, and the author’s youthful escapades in Italy and the Haight-Ashbury. As the New York Times put it, “An easy, fluid stylist, Barich writes entertainingly about anything.”   Few writers are as gifted as Barich at making people come alive on the page. His portrait of David Milch, the legendary creator of HBO’s Deadwood, offers an inside look at an eccentric genius at work. Here the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia is depicted as a real person, not a rock star cliché. He finds heroes in such unlikely places as the San Fernando Valley, where former gang members try to prevent teenagers from killing one another in turf wars, and in the trials of operating a home for paranoid schizophrenics in San Francisco.   Whenever Barich hits the road, whether to London or Barbados, he expresses the sheer joy of being alive. An Angle on the World is an ideal bedside reader, packed with insight, good humor, and razor-sharp prose that has earned Barich his enviable reputation as a writers’ writer.   “Few writers are so lucid and evocative.” —Robert Stone, New York Times–bestselling author
