Kevin Searock transports readers to the waterside as he
explores the timeless relationship between the outdoors
and the sport of fishing.

Whether standing in a quiet Wisconsin creek, by a high-country
lake in Wyoming, or on the grassy margins of England’s hallowed
chalkstreams, Kevin Searock believes anglers are driven by a
vision: “There are things on this good Earth that only the angler
sees, and one of them is the breathless beauty of a trout
emerging from a river.” Here, in this evocative collection of fishing
essays, he takes readers under the surface of this ancient sport,
casting a spell of water-magic. Although trout are central to many
of the stories, bluegills, bass, and other warm-water fish also
grace these pages.

We all, if we are lucky, find ways of loving the world. Fishing
is how Kevin Searock loves the world. These essays, like all
good love stories, are windows into a strange and obsessive
heart. Searock’s fishing illuminates our land and waters and the
nature and mystery of how we love. "
~David Allan Cates, author of Freeman Walker
