In Lines on the Water , David Adams Richards writes eloquently and movingly about his life on the shores of one of the world's great fishing rivers. With the same insight and emotion that have won him praise for his fiction, Richards brings to life a community centred on fly-fishing -- a sport that has become, for many, a way of life. Weaving together tales of the guides and poachers, the "sports" and the city slickers, Richards pays tribute to all who have shared in the joy of fishing the Miramichi.

This is a book about our relationship with nature, about hunters and fishermen, friendship and family, history and memory. Lines on the Water teems 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.
