Editor reviews

Listening to Peter Johnson's congenial performance of Fishless Days, Angling Nights is like spending time with an affable friend bursting with amusing anecdotes and often-profound insights not just on fly fishing, but also on women and life in general. The 2006 Alexander Scourby Narrator of the Year deploys a tall-tale drawl to complement Sparse Grey Hackle's masterful storytelling. Johnson treats Hackle's tales of mishaps and successes with whimsical charm, and listeners will especially find it difficult to resist laughing out loud at Hackle's blunder-filled attempts to repair a set of waders. Full of lighthearted, down-to-earth philosophy, this audiobook is an enjoyable listen for all.

This virtual treasure trove of amusing anecdotes, profound insights, and recollections of fly fishing and camping moments too marvelous (and sometimes too frustrating) to forget resurfaces for its 40th anniversary.
Sparse Grey Hackle’s classic is a mixture of sentiment and hilarity. This 40th anniversary edition - complete with a new introduction by the author’s longtime friend, editor, and fellow fisherman, Nick Lyons - is sure to be a favorite of the next generation of fly fishermen and women.
