John Holt - "Guide Wars"

Wilderness Adventure Press, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket: Fine. Second Edition.

-John relates his version of the good, the bad, and the ugly in the fly-fishing world in this chronicle of his adventures with an outrageous cast of friends as they careen across America on fishing expeditions. John teams up with a new girlfriend, Barsey, and a bonefishing guide, Henry, one of the original old time guides in the Keys who resents the intrusion of more people and buildings. After a few beers in the evening, Henry has been known to tear up the new building signs. Barsey, a lucious redhead who meets John at the local pub, joins up with him on a fishing trip in the lead story, "Wasted Away on the Gulf". From "They're All Crazy in Dillon" to "Coulee Hats and Bare Feet in the North Woods", each of these stories is filled with fun, fishing, and the odd beer. This is John in top form, with one of the funniest, most entertaining books written this decade. John Holt is the sporting writers' Hunter S. Thompson, and American treasure, and one of our premier writers.
