The pleasures of fly fishing in the northeastern United States and Canada. Ranging from boyhood remembrances to his wife's first fishing expedition, the author revels in being a trout fisherman. "An old phrase evokes the fly-fisher's spring: the sweet of the year. On an April evening the wind comes softly from the south. The angler reaches the countryside with his friends. Stepping from the car, he smells the damp earth and feels the wind. Then suddenly the sweetness is upon him. From the pools and swamp meadow across the road he hears the peepers, the little frogs of spring, singing as though their lungs and hearts would break."
