'Fly Fishing' celebrates the most elegant and artistic side of fishing, explaining exactly what it suggests to be an angler-- in the spirit of Izaak Walton-- and how fly fishers differ from bait fishers. The sporting and aesthetic appeal of fly fishing is described in Fennel's typical witty and reflective design. As he says, "Fly fishing is the supreme type of fishing; it provides us a reason to fish merely, travel gently, and explore the wild places that renew our soul. With a fishing pole, we're not casting to a fish; rather a circle of dreams, that ripples and spreads into every aspect of our lives".
Fennel's Journal is the genuine and amusing account of one man's search for an old-fashioned and serene rural life. Written by eccentric English compatriot Fennel Hudson, the Journal traces his efforts to stabilize the pressures of modern-day living by following the mantra of 'Stop-- Unplug-- Escape-- Enjoy'.
Brought to life by a mix of thought-provoking and typically amusing incidents, Fennel's writing is deeply individual, self-effacing, and sincere. As one reader commented, "Fennel is the only author who can make me laugh out loud and cry in the exact same sentence. His Journal had me continuously in tears, for all the ideal factors".
