A River Never Sleeps

A River Never Sleeps

New York: Crown Publishers, Inc., 1974.

Reprint of the Morrow first edition originally published in 1946, with a new preface by the author. With illustrations by Louis Darling.

Roderick Haig-Brown writes of fishing not just as a sport, but as an art. He knows moving water and the life within it - its subtlest mysteries and perpetual delights. He is a man who knows fish lore as few people ever will, and the legends and history of a great sport. Month by month he takes you from river to river, down at last to salt water and the sea: in January, searching for steelhead in the dark, cold water; in May, fishing for bright sea-run cutthroats; and on to the chill days of October and the majestic run of spawning salmon.
