Capt. Mark Giacobba
Fly fishing the waters of Everglades National Park, Flamingo
Ramones “blitzkrieg bop”
Peter Frampton “do you feel like we do”
Enjoy a thoughtful, rural, and down-to-earth portrait of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay as seen by an avid fly fisherman. From isolated tidal rivers to unexpected spots beneath highway overpasses, each of the 12 stories, organized by the month of the year, offers a unique view of this diverse fishery with the straightforward sensitivity of an old country song.
Along with a thorough examination of the fishery, read about struggles with the economic difficulty of creating a home on Maryland’s Eastern Shore; consider an elegy for a faithful truck; and find an unexpected winter redemption in a pawnshop. Each chapter includes wood cut prints by Danielle Spradley and the vintage photography of A. Aubrey Bodine. The stories are punctuated with old wives’ tales and family recipes. All good fishing yarns provide anglers with insight and useful information, but these stories extend past the fishery of the Chesapeake Bay and into our daily lives.

While Steve Stone was making short films In Tasmania recently, he came across a great story of a couple who “sold the farm” to pursue their fishing passions.
After traveling the world fly fishing, Karen and Peter Brooks have established a guiding and accommodations service central to the beautiful fisheries in Tasmania.
As it turns out, Karen is only the third female “Certified Casting Instructor” and the only female CCI guide in the southern hemisphere.
