Publisher's Summary

Originally published in 1994, this book was a fly-fishing phenomenon in the way Howell Raines' Fly Fishing Through the Mid-Life Crisis was. Taking his fishing hobby to near metaphysical levels, Ted Leeson tells about his passions: rivers, trout, and fly fishing. With wry humor and rare insight, he explores questions that engage most fishermen: What is it about rivers that draws us so irresistibly, and why does fly fishing seem such an aptly suited response? Above all, The Habit of Rivers is about ways of seeing the wonderfully textured world that emanates from a river.

A wonderful description of the essence of angling

Ted Leeson describes the reasons why we go trout fishing better than anyone else I have ever read, even John Gierach! A total joy.

Wonderful Fly Fishing Read

Simply, superb! The quality of this work should stand head and shoulders up there with mainstream literary prowess, but for the niche topic of fly fishing...

I feel very fortunate that our pastime has been graced with such a work of genius..
