Fly Fishing Books: McGuane's Gallatin Canyon

The New York Times Book Review is going to feature Thomas McGuane’s new collection of short stories, Gallatin Canyon, on this Sunday’s front page. Our sources say that it is going to be a very favorable review. Meanwhile, it was our primary entertainment (besides rubbing elbows with all our fellow bloggers) at the Fly Fishing Retailer show in Denver. While not a fly fishing book per se, Gallatin Canyon (Knopf, July 2006, 240 pages) is written by one of the best fishing writers we have, and whether or not you are a Tom McGuane fan, you owe it to yourself to read this one. It is McGuane’s best writing to date, and it confirms that he is a brilliant short story writer.

  • Wonderful book. McGuane might be at his best in the short story format (like one or two of my other favorite writers).
