Author to illuminate the joys of fly fishing

Written by 

David Joy, the author of the new book Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman’s Journey, will hold a reading and signing at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18, at Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville. The event is hosted by Blue Ridge Books and Waynesville Fly Shop.

Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman’s Journey delves into David Joy’s obsession with fish. Feeling more comfortable with fish than with humans, he works to reveal why he is inherently defined by the piscine world. Topics range from environmentalism to family, from Rousseau’s “noble savage” to the ones that got away, from places that remain wild to the worn cork of rods, and from the beauty of native trout to the art of fly tying.

Not only a book about fishing but also a story of life, Growing Gills: A Fly Fisherman’s Journey is the tale of one man’s venture into the wild to find understanding.

Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
