The classic book from a revered artist and fly-tying master. An internationally renowned artist, John Atherton (1900–1952) was also a legend in the world of fly fishing. This lost classic, originally published in 1961, combines his evocative memoirs of Vermont fishing expeditions with practical directions for fly-tying. Atherton’s reminiscences and instructions are complemented by his exquisite sketches of tools and scenes from the angler’s life. The author’s wife, artist Maxine Atherton, notes in her introduction that in addition to his skills as an accomplished artist and fine sportsman John Atherton was a romantic realist, whose exuberant outbursts of wonder over natural phenomena celebrated our planet’s everyday magic. Indeed, Atherton’s work was featured in the Museum of Modern Art’s 1943 exhibition of American Realists and Magic Realists. On a more practical note, Maxine Atherton adds that the Impressionistic fly patterns such as those featured in this book have worked wonders for her fishing, fooling trout in rivers throughout North America and Europe. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

On angling as a woman in the first half of the twentieth century. Like fast moving currents, the fishing tales in The Fly Fisher and the River move us through a selection of Max Atherton’s experiences both within rivers’ waters as well as at their outer edges. They remind us that alongside the (then-) radical environmentalist-explorer part of her, there was a playful joie de vivre, someone who appreciated the company of good-looking, intelligent outdoorsmen. Even before her husband’s death, Max enjoyed the attention she got as a fisherwoman. While she cherished a few female friendships, Max held the opinion that women did not generally engage their minds as much as they could and tended to settle for less in their lives than she was willing to. The men she liked—educated, with leisure time to fish—had more freedom and could have adventures and talk about ideas, politics, and the intricacies of fly fishing. This refined form of angling provided an escape from the mundane, and Max enjoyed the adrenaline rush of fishing and camping in the great outdoors as much as the meditative quiet time in nature. Her expertise provided the entrée she needed to thrive in a man’s world—a fact reflected in her writing about the joys of casting her lines into one river after another.

Praise for the first edition "Hughes' thesis seems to be that angling is a rare pleasure to be shared in print as well as enjoyed in person." --Steve Raymond, Flyfisher "His views on conservation are especially refreshing with a depth of historical perspective and a clean line of reasoning that will grab your understanding first, then your emotions, unlike much of the standard rhetoric that omits that first step." --John Gierach "An Angler's Astoria is full of the youthful exuberance of its author and his Pacific Northwest. Among so many books of doleful reminiscence (written by young men), Hughes's stories are oases." --Fly Fisherman "Like his more formal works, An Angler's Astoria contains many lessons, the kind you come by honestly, if you grow up fishing a place you learn to love--homewaters, or heartwaters as it were--and ultimately become an aquatic entomologist-cum-expert fly fisher." --Seth Norman, California Fly Fisher New edition of one of the books that launched Dave Hughes' career 1st edition published by Frank Amato in 1982 New preface and a substantive, new, unpublished piece, Life Cycles A reflective, exuberant collection of stories and essays about Hughes' home water near his hometown, Astoria, Oregon
