Audible Editor Reviews

In a charming series of stories and reflections, The Seasonable Angler: Journeys Through a Fisherman's Year follows Nick Lyons through a year of fishing, contemplation, and wonderment with the natural world. The book's language takes on an almost poetic cadence in this performance from Patrick Downer, who voices Lyons' breathless experiences fishing for trout and convening with nature with a warm sense of humor. A spirited exploration of fishing through the seasons, The Seasonable Angler is a deeply satisfying listen for anyone who knows the joy of reeling in a fish.

Publisher's Summary

Nick Lyons's first fishing book, The Seasonable Angler, is the story of a fisherman's year, from the projects and fantasies of an angler's winter through the thrill of a June evening's rise on the Beaverkill, and on to the pleasures and melancholia of autumn trout fishing.

In a book of spirited contrasts, Nick Lyons recounts hilarious misadventures on Opening Day and on family trips, as well as quiet moments when the fisherman becomes contemplative and close to nature. Lyons captures the excitement of catching a first trout - and the sadness of having killed, at times, too many fish. There is an increasing respect for the natural world, for conservation, for the spirit of the sport.

The Seasonable Angler is not only for avid fishermen but for everyone who appreciates fine writing about nature and who wants to understand what animates that strong clan of people who fish.
