Book recommendation for fishermen

We arrived to the end of the year, and with that the cold came as well, so we must spend more time indoors than we might want to. And in this case what’s better than reading a good book in a warm room? We thought to share a couple of books we found interesting you might find one you like. Who knows? One of them may land on your Christmas list as a gift for a loved one.

Duncan James – The river why

A coming-of-age story of a young fly fisherman, who strikes out on his own to take a journey in self-discovery. A fun tale about family, friends, love and of course nature. If you are interested in fishing, and character development, then this light-hearted, at times philosophical story might be the one for you.

Norman Maclean – A river runs through it

A semi-autobiographical story written by American author Norman Maclean. A beautiful albeit heart-wrenching true story about two brothers, and what it was like to grow up at the first half of the 20th century. The book contains detailed descriptions of fishing and the Montana landscape, so if you are a lover of both fishing and nature, go grab this one. You will not regret it. Fun fact: this book was made into a movie directed by Robert Redford in 1992.

Thomas McGuane – The longest silence: A life in fishing

An entertaining read to all who love angling and the outdoors. The book features 33 beautifully written essays by Thomas McGuane who dedicated his life to the sport. It contains everything that anyone who loves fishing will want to read about. Give it a try, you will be hooked!

Skyfishing - Gideon Sterer

And here is the last one, for the youngest anglers. A lovely tale about a fishing expert grandfather, who had to move to the city where he can’t fish at all, and a granddaughter who comes to the rescue with the idea of pretending to fish out of a window. This is a beautiful picture book about companionship and friendship between family members.

So here they are. Our picks for a cold day when you have to stay inside. Let’s warm up our hearts with great stories and tales.
