New Fly Fishing Books: Lou Ureneck's Backcast

The head of Boston University’s journalism department has authored a book that tells the story of regaining a son’s trust while fly fishing in the wilds of Alaska. Out on September 18, Backcast: Fatherhood, Fly-fishing, and a River Journey Through the Heart of Alaska (St. Martin’s, 304 pages, hardback) recounts Ureneck’s “own fatherless childhood, the influence of his mother’s boyfriend who helped him learn to fish, and the realization that he himself had done the one thing he always promised himself he would not do: He ended his marriage in divorce.”
