More Information
Fishing in B.C.s wilderness fuels the bonds of friendship between the author and literary giant Ted Hughes

They met at a poetry reading, but Ehor Boyanowsky and British Poet Laureate Ted Hughes became friends through their sharedand unquenchablepassion for fishing. Against the backdrop of the Dean River, one of the worlds greatest steelhead rivers, the two men explored their mutual regard for the planets wild places. Boyanowsky draws on personal correspondence, interviews and journal entries to recreate their encounters and to paint an intimate portrait of a lifelong outdoorsman, conservationist and artist.

The book also goes behind the creative process as fishing logs transmute into poetry, talk becomes action and the queens bard composes bawdy verse on the drive to a stag party. Boyanowsky realizes hes been privileged to see a Hughes who is different from the public persona.

In these tales of male friendship and the primal act of fly-fishing, the reader gets glimpses of the nature red in tooth and claw that drew Ted Hughes to Canadaand rekindled his love of the natural world.
