Peter Kaminsky didn’t know a fly rod from a hot rod back in 1974 when| while vacationing in the Florida Keys| he landed his bait right under the nose of a 35-pound grouper. At that life-changing moment| he was hooked on fishing. In the three decades since| the “New York Times” outdoors columnist has fished his way across his native land| discovering America-and himself-through his passion for angling.
In “American Waters|” Kaminsky shares in lyrical prose his fly-fishing journeys around what he calls “the fishingest country on earth.” From the Ozarks to the Everglades| from the Brooklyn waterfront to Yellowstone| from the bountiful riptides of Montauk Point to the spring creeks of Montana| Kaminsky has fished the best. Whether he is pursuing tarpon in the Marquesas| smallmouth in the Ozarks| or the albacore of Cape Fear| the fishing tales recounted here convey the simple joy| timelessness| grace| and beauty that are to be found casting a fly rod.
