A Different Angle - Morris. The sport of fly fishing attracts women in unprecedented numbers. Women have been fly fishing for centuries; the first essay on the subject was penned by a nun in the ealry 1400s. Here are meditations of 17 women-from writers to full-time sportswomen-on their experiences with this enthralling pastime. Ranging from the naturalistic to the turgidly symbolic and philosophical, the most successful tales capture something of the fishing experience
Little Rivers - Margot Page - "This splendid collection of essays, reprinted from periodicals like the New York Times, Rod & Reel, and Trout, is remarkable especially because Page is able to be lyrical while writing matter-of-fact prose. The book's charm is enhanced by [her] personal history." One of our most respected angling writers ... Margot Page can't write an ungraceful sentence. I'll take this elegant book any day." Fly Rod & Reel Magazine
Reel Women Lyla Foggia - Presenting a new angle on angling: the captivating history of the daring, ingenious, and skillful women who have made a lasting impact on sportfishing -- from a trendsetting 15th-century nun to the champions of today's professional tournaments.
Reading the Waters - Mallory Burton - Stories and essays to be of a different and interesting perspective from the eyes of a experienced and skilled woman who has fly fished for long enough to understand all of the nuances and fine points of this sport. She shares not only this understanding in her writings but also the environment in which it all occurs.
