Crosscurrents: A Fly Fisher's Progress (Paperback)

Unavailable. Withdrawn from sale by publisher.


Outrageous and inspired essays from the author whose writing "ranks him with some of the best nature writers in print." Jim Babb is one of the most eccentric and riveting essayists at work today. In Crosscurrents, Babb recounts his early days with a cast of colourful and bizarre local characters in a small East Tennessee town and his migration through Brahmin Boston to the backwoods of Maine where he built his own house. "What rings on every page of this book," writes Ted Leeson, "is a tremendously energetic, expressive, and robust voice...It is distinctive and original, an authentic voice, pure home-grown." The story that voice tells is always connected to fly fishing - in waters near and far, always memorable.
