Nervous water has a meaning: while the fleeting crease or subtle wrinkle on the surface of a lake or stream could be nothing, wise anglers know that these small surface movements are nearly always signs of fish stirring below—as it is with the sport of fly fishing.
Acclaimed fly fisher and author Steve Raymond has contemplated these issues in numerous articles and essays published in many magazines. Nervous Water is the collection of many of these reflections, detailing thirty-four variations on the theme of fly fishing. Tackling such topics as the very definition of fly fishing itself and how to dress for fishing, these variations form a selective opinionated chronicle of the trends, developments, and changes in fly fishing from the 1960s to the present. Steve Raymond also discusses some of the pioneers of the sport and the fish that make it all possible.
Nervous Water is a book for everyone who loves fly fishing and all those who enjoy looking beneath the surface.
