Fly fishing guide and poet Chris Dombrowski’s journey to the Bahamas led him to David Pinder, a legendary Bahamian bonefishing guide whose accuracy and intuition were virtuosic. Bonefish are prized for their elusiveness and their tenacity and no one was better at hunting them than Pinder. By the time Dombrowski meets Pinder, however, he has been abandoned by the industry he helped build and the world of his beloved bonefish is degraded by tourists he himself did so much to attract. All of this in Body of Water: A Sage, a Seeker, and the World's Most Alluring Fish (Milkweed Editions).
“A metaphor-laced meditation on the art and practice of fly-fishing, the social and economic history of the Bahamas, the evolution of archipelago geology and the chronicle of Dombrowski's personal struggle to juggle his fishing and poetry obsessions against the financial needs of his own family... Fly-fishing mysticism at its best." —Shelf Awareness.
