Thomas McGuane Fly Rod & Reel 's "Angler of the Year"

about_mcguane.jpgNick Lyons says of Thomas McGuane in the tribute that accompanies this year’s announcement, “He is Fly Rod & Reel‘s Angler of the Year and my Angler for the Last Hundred Years.” And “it is the uncanny way he has of linking angling to our larger existence, in a thousand memorable instances, that stuns us most.”
Tom, who is one of MidCurrent‘s original editorial board members, turns 70 in December. Happy early Birthday, Tom.

    70? SEVENTY?? What happen to the long-haired Florida fishing guide who wrote 92 In The Shade? This is worse than a late night read of the Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock!

    A great pick by Fly Rod & Reel Magazine. His “Some Remarks” at the beginning of his book, “The Longest Silence”, should be requird reading by anyone that picks up a fly rod.
