A Fisherman's Life on the Miramichi

Rate this:
David Adams Richards explores man's relationship with nature: whether fishing salmon on the Miramichi, hunting moose or deer, losing your way in the woods, or sneaking away from a bear. This book is about hunters and fishermen, about history and memory.
Richards weaves together the tales that have informed his life as a fisherman. He has learned his skill from the guides and the poachers, the sports and the city slickers who have all fished the Miramichi. He learns about perseverance and respecting nature, and he reflects on the changes that the modern world has brought to the great river. Lines on the Water abounds with lore and wisdom, humour, and most of all, passion.

This is an enjoyable read even for those who don't really have much interest in fishing. The stories are full of insight and wonderful descriptions of the rivers of northern New Brunswick. A good book to read on a winter's night "by the fire", or on a lazy summer's day.
