Book - Fly Fishing the 41st: From Connecticut to Mongolia and Home Again: A Fisherman's Odyssey

book_fly_fishing_41st_sm.jpg
Fly-fishing around the world on the forty-first parallel sounds like an idea that was cooked up solely to produce a book, but it turns out not to have been a bad idea at all. Prosek takes us east from his home in Connecticut through southern Europe, the Balkans, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, and Japan, then back home again through the western U.S., stopping frequently to indulge his passion for fishing. Traveling often with an Austrian ichthyologist whose fanatical interest in trout and char exceeds even his own, Prosek goes to great lengths to find the rarest species in the remotest areas, yet never spurns a chance to catch whatever swims in the nearest stream, river, pond, or lake. Unlike his traveling companion, Prosek's enthusiasm for fish by no means blinds him to the charms and eccentricities of the places he goes and the people he meets, so his account reads at least as much like a travelogue as a fishing journal, and as such it will interest readers who don't know a caddis from a coat-rack, as well as those who do.
