New Fly Fishing Books: Taylor Streit's Man vs. Fish

December 5, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

Subtitled “The Fly Fisherman’s Eternal Struggle,” this new book by New Mexico guide Taylor Streit is really a large collection of stories — most of them quite entertaining — about this fly fishing veteran’s many experiences fishing not just New Mexico and the Rio Grande, but the Bahamas, Patagonia and Mexico. There are even a couple of hunting stories here, rounding out a fairly large picture of how the author has spent his last forty years in the out of doors. As with his earlier book Instinctive Fly Fishing (see MidCurrent‘s review), you won’t find a lot of lofty language or pretension here, but there are plenty of lyrical moments.
