Tom McIntyre on Louisiana Redfish

February 28, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

While inhaling gnats in the Louisiana wetlands, Tom McIntyre learns all about redfishing and spins a really fine story in Gray’s Sporting Journal. The piece is full of hilarity, including this quote from Gloria Steinem: “a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.” Besides the good writing, the story begins with a classic photo of a redfish submarining after a fly — something instantly recognizeable to a redfish angler. Tom McIntyre’s new book is called Seasons & Days: A Hunting Life (The Lyons Press).
