This collection is about fishing and everything but fishing. From the trout streams of Montana to the shores of New England, to the spring creeks of Chile?s Patagonia to the clear waters of Belize, Hull regales readers with humility and hilarity. In Montana he fishes fabled trout streams in twilight; the day runs down while his brother?s time literally runs out. In a small pond on the grounds of a psychiatric hospital in Kansas, he fishes, pulling bluegill out of the water along with an essential part of his identity. While Hull fills his dispatches with wonderful characters and spectacular fishing stories, he offers searing insight into the human heart.
WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING IN PRAISE OF HULL'S WRITING
"Hull's description of land and water will put you there, right there. But his
dialogue also provides dramatic topography, exchanges in which the wrong word or right gesture looms larger for the silence or space that surrounds it, like a mountain rising abruptly from a plain; and where currents of human intercourse are trickier by far than a turnaround mixing seams at a confluence. Seriously well done, and a fine read . . ."
