English | 2011 | ISBN: 0914875604 | 60 Pages | EPUB | 1.35 MB

In Growing Gills: A Fly Fsherman's Journey, David Joy uses his obsession with fly fishing as a way to delve into himself. Through his deep connection to the natural world, joy reveals why he is inherently defined by fish and water. The youngest in a family of fishermen, Joy has been exposed to the passion of casting lines since an early age. Yet as he grows older, he finds that the influence and necessity of the piscine world take on a new role in his life.

Growing Gills articulates the philosophical implications of time spent on the Atlantic seashore, at Piedmont lakes, and in Appalachian streams. Joy explores family and friends, environmentalism and respect for wild places, prize catches and the "ones that got away," the beauty of native trout, the greed of developers, the worn cork of rods, and the art of fly tying. Ultimately, by revealing the reasons for his obsession, he is able to understand the man he has become - truly a fish out of water.

Equally a book about fishing and 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.
