More Information
This is the first book of prose by a Pennsylvania poet and fly-fisher. An urban angler revels a surprising fact: good fishing--and adventure -- can be found a bike ride away within the city limits of America's first capital. Trout and bass, white perch and channel catfish, birds and a variety of human characters are all encountered along the Schuylkill River and its tiny tributary, Wissahickon Creek, which are bordered by Fairmount Park, the world's largest urban greenbelt. A tale told in poetic prose, this is a practical, lyrical, all-American fish story.

QUOTE FROM THE PUBLISHER:
"Its not often that a really great book of essays crosses my desk, so when I read this one, I could not pass it up. While these stories happen to take place in Philadelphia, they capture the heart and soul of fly-fishing and will be enjoyed by anglers everywhere. From catching the first trout of the year to performing fish CPR; from being outfished by a kingfisher to the loss of a treasured net, the tales told in this book are clever and entertaining. If you're a fan of John Gierach, then allow me to introduce you to ron P. swegman, a shining example of the next generation of angling writers."--Frank W. Amato
