A fly fishing memoir is a tough thing to pull off. In my mind, "been there, done that," isn't good enough. "Me and Bob went fishing"... yawn. "How I learned to solve the mysteries of the universe while I caught trout"... give me a break.
In other words, I often pick up these books, and within 10 pages, I'm usually thinking to myself, "Get real!"
Whoa, wait a minute... there's a thought. Get real...
