Fly Fishing Books: The Snowfly

May 21, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Throughout the entire novel though, Bowie Rhodes pursues the elusive snowfly: a fly hatch appearing only once every 10 to 15 years which -beckoning trout of indescribable proportion – and, like lightning, never in the same place twice. Expect a book strictly about fly-fishing, and you’ll be disappointed. Embrace one seeking a work about life, love, loss and, at times, the Upper Peninsula, you’ll be rewarded.” Matt Hanson reviews Joseph Heywood’s novel The Snowfly (The Lyons Press, September 2000, 468 pages) on Miningjournal.net.
