Tents, Boats and the Ones That Got Away

Outdoor Memories
By Tim Mead
Ancient Angler Press, $17.95

Some might call this a memoir. Others might call it a great collection of fishing stories. Both are correct. The author shares stories from his long fishing career and across a vast collection of places, including the Northern Wilds. The book begins: “As is true with many anglers, I can’t remember the first time I went fishing.” From there it goes forward, sharing the author’s rich life through the prism of fishing. Mead’s passion for angling, especially fly fishing, has taken him far and wide, although he continues to be drawn to the Quetico, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and the trout rivers of Montana. If you like these places, too, he’s pretty good company.Shawn Perich
