David Richards truly expresses the beauty and subtlety of fly fishing magnificenly. Whether a fly fisherman or not, this book truly is an enjoyable read. Through detailed and off-beat decriptions of his life and his love of the river, he reminds me why I love to read!

Format: Paperback
I read this book and every fishing trip I have ever been on came rushing back. As I read I could feel the weight of the fly vest on my shoulders and smell the campfire. No one other than a down home salmon fisherman could have written this book. While he fished the Mirimichi I fished the Restigouche and once had the privilidge of meeting his Uncle, Richard Adams, on the Matepedia.
I know the beauty of the land and the feeling of a line tighten under a heavy fish, Everything is so real, from the sound of the water and the singing of a reel being stripped of its line down to the irritating buzzing of the bugs. He speaks of the friendships on the river so accurately one knows it is not fiction.
A wonderful read that I tore through and will sit down again to read it again to savour anything I may have missed.
My only regret is there were only 5 stars to give it.

HASH(0x9cc91dd4) out of 5 stars Like Walden, but more interesting Jan. 17 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a joy to read. Richards tells his stories of the Miramichi as if you're around the campfire with him, and spins fish tales, one after another, not really connected but somehow all connected, till when you finish you feel you've somehow received wisdom. David Adams Richards is a master ---- I believe he's one of this era's great writers. Summary: The book is like Walden, but more interesting.

HASH(0x9d2ae258) out of 5 stars Engrossing Tales of Life in Context of Fly Fishing in New Brunswick Dec 21 2014
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Reflections of growing up over 50 years on the famous Miramichi River in New Brunswick. The author was born with a handicap that he overcomes. He is a profound observer of life and people, and a gifted storyteller. A very enjoyable read that will leave you thinking.
HASH(0x9d2ae27c) out of 5 stars Beautiful comparison of life's subtelties and fly fishing Jan. 7 1999

HASH(0x9d2ae1bc) out of 5 stars Not to be considered a fishing guide to this great river. Nov. 7 2013
By Monica L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was hoping for more content on fishing the Miramichi ( Line On The Water ). as the secondary title ( A Fisherman's Life on the Miramichi ), to me was the more correct title for this book. I did however enjoy the read.
