Trout Fishing and the Meaning of LifeBook - 2003
Between the drinking, cigars, and the piloting of a small dingy, Kingwell, previously of the belief that fishing is stupid, finds that the sport does allow for one important thingquite a bit of time to just think, allowing thoughts to wander and new vistas to open up. This realizationa kind of felicitous meandering and suspension in the delights of the momentleads Kingwell through everything from falconry, male bonding, and procrastination to golf, cooking, and the relationship between reflection and actionnot to mention the relative benefits of wet versus dry flies, the cast, and the ethics of fishing. Ultimately, and as this book engagingly shows, fishing is worth thinking about because of the thinking that fishing allows. Especially when the trout arent biting.
