A reflective, insightful, and enthusiastic collection of stories and essays about Hughes' home waters on the Oregon coast, An Angler's Astoria is an ode to familiar fishing. A new epilogue complements and completes the original stories. The stories describe and define a time and a place: the fly-fishing adventures and misadventures that Hughes had growing up on the Oregon coast, and the lives, from tiny aquatic insects through trout, steelhead, and salmon, up to deer and elk, cougars and bears, and on to that most mischievous animal of all--humans--that he encountered while prowling his native rivers and streams, ponds, and lakes. Universal and timeless, these stories apply not just to fly fishing but to many other aspects of living a life in any time, and in every place. The book became a quiet classic, and it's as current and important today as it was the day it arrived. Both humble and humorous, it's a delightful and informative read wherever in the world you might find your own adventures, with or without a fly rod in your hand.
