The Longest Silence – Thomas McGuane

7uoCBAAAQBAJOne of the best books on fishing ever written, this could easily have been higher on the list, but at this point it’s all subjective. McGuane’s writing style is undeniably brilliant. It is only surpassed by his obvious love for and expertise in all things fish. From fly fishing on local rivers as a child to pursuing big game on the open ocean, this series of essays covers a lifetime of fishing experiences. It reads as if the author put a little piece of his soul into every page. This is definitely not a ‘how-to’ or ‘where-to’ guidebook. It is an exceptional book about one angler’s lifetime of love and devotion to the sport.
(Other excellent books by this author include Ninety-Two in the Shade and Nothing But Blue Skies)
