Author Bill King with Fishing Tips and Tales (May 20)
Bill King, owner and chief bamboo fly rod maker of Top Ten Tapers, will be at The Learned Owl Book Shop on Saturday, May 20th, from 1 to 3 p.m. with his new book, "Fishing Tips and Tales: A Collection of Short Stories".
King is dedicated to recreating authentic reproductions of the best and most famous bamboo fly rods ever designed in the last 135 years. He sells his creations all over the country for the price of a mid-level graphite fly rod. In his spare time, he fishes and writes fishing stories.
His book shares the fishing life through quirky combinations of surprise and a sly knowledge of the inevitable, capturing the wonderful obsessions, successes, near misses and failures of the fishing life. The stories are compelling essays of the fishing condition, reminiscent of old school angling literature. Some are poignant, others are full of shenanigans. As one reviewer said, "This book is pure brain candy."
