Trout Magic is a warm, joyous look at trout fishing and its attendant tall tales, strange happenings, and all-around fishing lore by the author of Anatomy of a Murder and Trout Madness. John D. Voelker (aka, Robert Traver) recounts the story of a mysterious "dancing fly," speaks pointedly about "kiss-and-tell" fishermen, debunks fly fishermen as the "world's greatest snobs," lets us in on the fishing story Life missed, and takes us along on his strangest fishing trip. We meet the unforgettable Danny McGinnis, guide, and other choice characters and events from his anything-but ordinary fishing trips. Mr. Voelker reveals some new angles on women anglers, and does a fine piece of tongue-in-cheek literary sleuthing regarding Ernest Hemingway's famous story, "Big Two-Hearted River."
There's enough trout magic here to rub off on every reader - man, woman, or child - John D. Voelker weaves his inimitable storytelling spell. Trout Magic is a marvelous catch of wit, wisdom, and anecdote sure to delight everyone who enjoys a master storyteller, who has here written about his wonderful world of trout fishing.
Here are a few of the stories: "Sins My Father Taught Me," "Is There a Mermaid in Your Creel," "Size Is Not the Measure," "The Ways of Fishermen," "Morris the Rodmaker," and "The Dancing Fly." (71/4 X 101/4, 196 pages, illustrations)
