Publisher's Summary

A high-altitude lake is the point of departure for these stories of dark adventure, in which fishing guides, amateur sportsmen, teenage misfits, scientists, mountaineers, and expatriates embark on disquieting journeys of self-discovery in far-flung places.

"Provocative and memorable, this collection strikes all the right chords." (Main Street Rag)

"I found myself consuming [these] thirteen tightly wound tales with addictive delight." (Fiction Writers Review)

A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing made the 2018 Eric Hoffer Book Awards Grand Prize Short List and was a finalist in the short-story category for both the 2018 American Fiction Awards and the 2017 International Book Awards. Earlier versions were shortlisted for the New Rivers Press Many Voices Project, the Autumn House Press Fiction Prize, and the Lewis-Clark Press Discovery Award. 

"Each story is a jewel, cracking open what matters most: love, family, and our big beautiful planet." (Ann Hood, author of The Book That Matters Most)

"Tim Weed proves himself a skilled creator of a sense of place...each story deposits one definitively into a geography, of mind and map." (The Boston Globe)

Poor Recording

As mentioned in other reviews, the stories are engaging but the fly fishing is pretty sparse. On a car speaker the recording is bearable. If you use headphones it sounds like it was recorded in a bucket and is unbearable.
