GREEN RIVER VIRGINS & OTHER PASSIONATE ANGLERS

Author: Mallory Burton
Publisher: GLOBE PEQUOT ( THE LYONS PRESS, FALCON), Oct 2000
Binding: Hardcover
ISBN: 1-58574-142-6

Synopsis
25 short stories about intense fly fishers, mostly women, none of whom wear tweeds or smoke a pipe. One woman struggles over her impending blindness, & an old-timer gracefully accepts being crowded off his home water. Serious or hilarious, these probing stories depict anglers who have a huge appetite for rivers, written by an author who displays her intimate knowledge of fly fishing, its language and mores. 5x8 inches, 240 pgs.

More Information
Among these passionate anglers are a closet fly fisher whose biological clock is ticking and a schoolgirl in Neoprenes, secretly raising coho fry. One woman struggles in denial over her impending blindness, and an old-timer gracefully accepts being crowded off his home water. Readers will meet that irresistible hustler, Brooke E. Trout, and a guide who has bar-hopped and backslapped her way right out of the "female race."

Green River Virgins captures the innermost secrets of a dozen rivers and the scores of folk who fish them. As Steve Bodio says, Burton knows more than fish and streams and tackle; she knows the hearts and minds of the humans who are happiest when they are waist-deep in a wild river.
