Western Waters: Fly-Fishing Memories and Lessons from Twelve Rivers
A Reading and Signing with author Tom Alkire on Nov. 9 at 10 am in the Green Skunk Theater at Royal Treatment Fly Fishing
Published by Stackpole Books just two months ago, Tom’s latest book is about some well-known (and some not-so-well-known) Western waters that blend how-to, where-to, and natural history with lyrical prose and a deep insight that comes only with knowing a place well. From rainforest rivers to desert rivers, from tidal rivers to those along the Continental Divide, Tom has waded and fished those waters over the decades. Along with his fishing adventures, the book also looks at the geography, the early explorers of, and the modern-day impacts on the rivers themselves.
Tom’s writing has been published widely in book and magazine form over the decades. His essays have appeared in national and regional publications, including Gray’s Sporting Journal, Sporting Classics, Flyfishing & Tying Journal and others. His previous books include There’s More To Fishing (Than Catching Fish) and River Stories: Headwaters to the Sea.
