Witty and heartfelt, Sixty Seasons looks back over more than half a century of fly fishing and writing about fly fishing. Steve Raymond returns with an informative and delightful collection of memories, stretching over his sixty seasons spent fishing.

Raymond takes the opportunity to write passionately about the full cast of his life, as well as how fly-fishing interacts with his life as a journalist, and vice versa. He offers sage advice about books, writers, rods, methods, and guides. He deftly ranges from joyful topics to bittersweet moments to a tongue-in-cheek quiz designed to test your fly-fishing sophistication. Other contemplations include:

  • Essays on fishing for trout, steelhead, bonefish, and carp
  • Surviving a career in journalism
  • Fishing for Atlantic salmon vs. Pacific salmon
  • The impending future of outdoor sports

    It is with good humor, precision, and thoughtful insight that Raymond reels you in. Sixty Seasons is a must-have for anyone who loves fly-fishing or the natural world.
