Based on Les Hill's 63 years of fly fishing in New Zealand, HOOKED FOR LIFE is packed with interesting, amusing and informative anecdotes. Lavishly illustrated with over 130 superb large-format colour photographs that not only invite one into the book, but also reveal the beauty ...of our rivers, streams, lakes and countryside, and encourage the reader to head out to experience the wonderful world of fly fishing. The perfect gift for any angler. The book resonates with the sheer joy of hunting and catching trout, while imparting a lifetime's worth of invaluable lessons on how to go about it. The reader will not only benefit from the author's years of experience with nymph and dry fly, but will enjoy soaking up the special atmosphere he evokes and relive vicariously the primal contest between angler and fish. Along the way they'll learn to think like a trout and understand the nature of the world it lives in; get some tips on streamside photography; and come to appreciate the author's view that it is often more satisfying to catch one special fish than a large number on a particular day, or that the trout that gets away can provide as much fun as several brought to a net. In the second part of the book, Dr Graham Macdonald's thoughtful chapters on fishing and wellness give an insight into the therapeutic benefits of fly fishing, an unusual angle not often explored in fly fishing literature.
