"Adventures of Fletcher Quill"

June 10, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

Dan Fallon has been writing the Fletcher Quill series of online fiction for LandBigFish.com since May of 2002, appealing, as he notes, to “ultra select 300 or so hardcore, eccentric and possessed enough fly fisher on the planet that socialize and fantasize with their resident guru who has one vision. The pursuit of the most unique sports fish caught, filmed and gently released and refooled by flies tied with rare extinct plumage that always fool game fish without fail.”
If you’re familiar at all with the heady, eccentric self-importance of George Macdonald Fraser’s “Flashman” series, “Fletcher Quill” performs as a fly fisher’s tribute: stimulating, oddly observant and absorbed in the angling prowess of the author. Fun stuff.
