"The View from Coal Creek: Reflections on Fly Rods, Canyons and Bamboo"


"The View from Coal Creek is a reflection on fly rods, fishing, and life seen from the vantage of a canyon in Colorado, but these are props in a larger story about life, love, and tradition. Erin Block is a young, powerful voice carrying the torch and passing on lessons, values, and history of this great, literary and vibrant sport."

  15. Out of curiosity, how much is never before seen material? Won't stop me from getting a copy when I get a chance, I prefer books read with propped up feet and a good cup of coffee rather than screen scrolling. I've read enough other authors over and over again, will gladly do the same with you.

    Congrats Erin, when I get it, I'll put it on the shelf next to Jay's book :-}
