David A. Van Wie’s new book chronicles his six-week, 5,000-mile odyssey covering over 50 locations in eight states. Storied Waters begins at Walden Pond and crosses paths with Thoreau in places like Wisconsin and Maine. Van Wie follows and fishes in the footsteps of giants from Thoreau to Hemingway, Robert Traver to Corey Ford, Louise Dickinson Rich to Aldo Leopold and many more. Storied Waters provides a virtual roadmap through 200 years of fly-fishing literature and a literal roadmap—complete with local fishing tips—to the hallowed waters of the sport.
David A. Van Wie writes a monthly column for The Maine Sportsman, has published feature articles in Northern Woodlands and the Maine Sunday Telegram, and is coauthor of The Confluence: A Collection of Essays, Art and Tall Tales about Fly-fishing & Friendship. After a 35-year career in environmental consulting and government, he now writes and lives in Lyme, New Hampshire. He is an accomplished photographer, a member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America, and writes a blog on fly-fishing and environmental issues at www.watchyourbackcast.com.
The talk will begin at 7:30PM. Doors will open at 7 PM for a wine and cheese reception with the author, sponsored by The Cheese Shop of Concord.
