"Welcome to Travers Corners, a dusty Montana town where nothing much has happened since Herbert Hoover stopped for gas. Travers Corners, like most small towns, has no newspaper, no radio station; but here, large trout--no, better than large trout, fictitious trout--await the angler. And apart from spreading gossip outside McCracken's General Store, the residents of Travers Corners love nothing more than fly fishing. Scott Waldie's delightful cast of characters breathes life into this tiny, out-of-the-way town. Meet Judson C. Clark, boatbuilder and sometime guide down the waters of Carrie Creek. Jud's best friend, Henry, knows his way around just about everything, and has a story and a laugh for everyone. Meet Dolores, the belle of Travers Corners; Sarah, who fled from New York City in search of quiet and community; Doc, who loves his profession and fly fishing--and not necessarily in that order; Ed, the mechanic who is too patriotic to work on imports; and so many more enormous personalities. Waldie's warmth, wit, and shrewd eye for characterization evoke a deep nostalgia for times past and quirky communities. For fly fishers everywhere, Travers Corners will be a second home."-- Provided by publisher.
