Cancelled - Tom Alkire
*This event has been cancelled.
We look forward to spring’s approach, and more time outside, but in the meantime, it seems like the moment for an evening spent celebrating the joys of flyfishing. Tom Alkire returns to Elliott Bay tonight to read from his book, Western Waters: Fly-Fishing Memories and Lessons from Twelve Rivers (Stackpole Books). Writing about well-known (and some not-so-well-known) Western waters, he blends how-to, where-to, and natural history with lyrical prose and a deep insight that comes only with knowing a place well. From rainforest rivers to desert rivers, from tidal rivers to those along the Continental Divide, he has waded and fished those waters over the decades. Along with his fishing adventures, the book also looks at the geography, the early explorers of, and the modern-day impacts on those rivers. Tom Alkire is also the author of River Stories.
