one more LAST CAST: On the Addictive Nature of Fishing
By Dennis D. Dauble
Nonfiction, 178 pages, 5.5" x 8.5"
What do tiny bars of complimentary soap, spam sandwiches and pillow hogs have to do with fishing? When does one more "last cast" beget another? How can some people confuse fishing with ... sex? This collection of short stories answers those questions, and more. Dennis Dauble - biologist, fisherman and author previously of "The Barbless Hook" and "Fishes of the Columbia Basin" - returns with more wry and humorous tales gleaned from a lifetime of fishing experiences and insights.
Among the revelations received at the rod's handle: some tipping points aren't revealed (alas) until after you pass the point of no return. A four-beer buzz can move a relationship along only so far. And as any friendly, but competitive, fisher might tell you, there's a limit to how much you can trust others when it comes to a good thing. Any reader will likely see themselves somewhere in this delightful collection - and fishermen and women will particularly find kindred spirit for their passion. As Dauble writes, "Fishing creeps into your thoughts, conversations and dreams to create transcendent connections that surprise and amaze."
