Anyone who loves fishing and the great outdoors (or just reading about it) will revel in these colourful tales from this respected fly fisherman. French lives in Tasmania on a 25-hectare block alongside a creek called Glen Dhu Rivulet surrounded by eucalypts and tea-trees, with trout fishing on his doorstep. It is a dream life for many and the multitude of charming tales of family and colourful characters bring this book to life. There are stories about fishing exploits and travels around Australia along with poignant philosophical moments. It is like listening to a good mate chat while sitting on a calm afternoon fly fishing in the afternoon sun. Delightful.
