July 1, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

Alice Munroe, author of the best seller The Beach House and of the new book Time Is a River, says fly fishing isn’t just about catching fish. It’s about feeling life. “Monroe says she is taken with the spiritual and intellectual aspect of fly-fishing, just as her character Mia is. ‘You’ll experience it today,’ Monroe says to a fly-fishing novice. ‘You’ll feel life. You’ll study the fish, what they’re doing. It’s what brings you back every time, trying to figure it all out. It’s all about doing the dance with the fish.'” Craig Wilson interviews the author for USAToday.
