  1. To Mr. Nick Lyons,

    Dear Sir, I have read several of your books, Fishing Widows, The Seasonable Angler and now My Secret Fishing Life. Your openness and view of a fly fishers life with all of our human frailties, insecurities and awkward times on a river makes me wish I could fish a Catskill River with you, sit on some streamside boulder and chat and simply talk life. Your stories make me sit and think about my life and laugh about the truth you speak. THANK YOU I hope you are still able to enjoy the flowing waters of a cool trout stream, with out that life can get empty.
