  • From fly-fishing contests and world records to the difficult subject of the death of loved ones--whether writing about epic catches of memorable fish, pristine wilderness rivers, or the Booboys’ controversial departure from R. L. Winston Rod Company, for Kustich the story of loss is linked to the story of hope, and both are reflected in the water we fish.

    With writing that Nick Lyons has described as “quietly but fiercely independent, free from the commercialism that cloaks the fly-fishing world like a fungus” author Jerry Kustich tackles a range of subjects in his latest book.

    Jerry Kustich is author of At the River’s Edge: Lessons Learned in a Life of Fly Fishing (2001), A Wisp in the Wind: In Search of Bull Trout, Bamboo, and Beyond (2005), and coauthor of Fly Fishingfor Great Lakes Steelhead (1999) all published by West River Publishing. His articles and essays have appeared in Fly Fisherman, Big Sky Journal, Fly Rod & Reel, and many other publications.
