Traver on Fishing

Robert Traver, Author, Nick Lyons, Editor Lyons Press $29.95 (348p) ISBN 978-1-58574-296-7
Nick Lyons presents Traver on Fishing, a treasury of essays and yarns by the author known as Robert Traver (pen name of former Michigan DA and judge John Voelker, who, following the success of Anatomy of a Murder, was able to retire from his legal work to fish full-time). Part personal experience and part fictional musings, Traver's essays (many of them selected from his three previous fishing books: Trout Madness, Anatomy of a Fisherman and Trout Magic) are lyrical, insightful and as enticing as the trout he gamely pursues, most especially at his favorite spot, Frenchman's Pond, with a tin cup of bourbon and a stogie.
