Nervous Water and Other Florida Stories

Author:

Nervous Water and Other Florida Stories is a collection of six short stories that explore the spirit of fly-fishing today. The author uses tales of stalking fish in Florida to examine environmentalism, philosophy, fishing as entertainment, the nature of celebrity, the meaning of relationships, and the importance of fishing to our identities. Nervous water can tell you where the fish are moving just beneath the surface, but it also implies that just under the surface lies an uneasiness, an apprehension about the future, and that within this anxiety lives the possibility—maybe even the promise—of something better.
