Saturday Shoutout / Jim Harrison, Older Fishing

2 comments / Posted on / by


Many of us were young when we began to fly fish, but none of us will be young when we are done.

Everything changes as we get older and our fishing is no exception. Somewhere between experience and infirmary we find ourselves looking at the water with new eyes and in our boots we find different angler. As the river never stands still, neither does the angler.

This essay by author Jim Harrison is honest and enlightening. Young or old, it’s well worth your time.

  1. I expect I like to fish as much as Harrison does; also cooking and eating. And, having read much of his writing over many years, The Raw and the Cooked might still be my favorite.
