Thanks!

Search by author=Roderick Haig-Brown. You will find every book they have in the system. Not to worry if what you want is not in a library near you. They will have it sent to your nearest library, and notify you when it gets there.

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.

I bought 'A River Never Sleeps' by Roderick Haig Brown 35 years ago in London, England. Little did I know after re-reading it for the 5th or 6th time that it would bring me to Vancouver Island 12 years ago to fish the Campbell. the river, on the banks of which, was his home. I now run a fly shop in BC.

It is simply one of the greatest books about fishing ever written. No one, in my humble opinion, communicates his love of fly fishing in rivers better. It is a book that one can re-visit time and time again and enjoy more each time. So rare to be able to do that.

The 4 seasons books are also a great read and mirror his fly fishing passion equally. Read them all as I have and you will be richer for it.

Thanks

A River Never Sleeps

Everyone should read this book. It is a classic as it really does explain why we fish and it's not all about catching.
A few years ago we stayed at his house on the Island and fished The Campbell River . We had a tour of the house and viewed his library and fly tying desk. His pipe was still in its tray.
He lived in Dorset for the early part of his life and his father attended the Dorchester Grammar School with Thomas Hardy. I spent a decade or so in the area when I taught at the same school.
