Fly Fishing Literature

“Moving Water”, a Book Review

"Moving Water"
“Dawn on the Henry’s Fork”, oil by Dave Hall

In “Moving Water”, Dave Hall, fly fisher, author and artist, combines his talents to reflect upon experiences along his life-long fly fishing journey, shared with friends and family. The verses come in snippets, leaving much unsaid. The accompanying misty, muted paintings portray the peace, tranquility and beauty to be found in nature and friendships. The effect of verse and oiled-canvas is to cause the observer to reflect as well. As his friend Tobey said, “We need to slow down.”

A short read, this thoughtful and beautiful work stirred my emotions. It led me on a journey as well, one that all should take.
