Between the Indian and Dividing Creeks, near the mouth of the Rappahannock River in Virginia's Chesapeake Bay, sits a parcel of land called Bluff Point. Like most bay-front villages, the bountiful resources and majestic landscape of this area that once sustained watermen and sportsmen alike have been depleted as over-harvesting, poaching, pollution and continued development have taken their toll, threatening the very legacy of its people. J.H. Hall's family first settled on this land shortly after the Civil War, where they maintained a tradition of farming, fishing and crabbing throughout the twentieth century. Hall's words flow as splendidly as the tides in this collection of personal reminisces and local and natural history celebrating the lives of the watermen before him and the uncertainty surrounding those today.

With humor and compassion, author J. H. Hall chronicles the joys and tribulations of Maine fly fishermen, their loved ones, and their adversaries. Hall's characters share a passion for fly-fishing-their lifeline-and an indifference to most of society's other conventions. Whether building an indoor trout stream, robbing a bank, or waging mischief against a market-savvy, modernist guide, these characters gallantly struggle to preserve a way of life and a part of Maine that is rapidly disappearing. Praise for previously published works by J. H. Hall: Paradise: Stories of a Changing Chesapeake: "Hall's portrayal glows like a watercolor. He mobilizes his language in quick, sure strokes: subdued, taut, winsome by turns." -Ramon de Rosas, Maine In Print "Michael Crichton is not the only doctor-turned-writer to come down the pike in the past few years In fact, I would say he's not even the best. The author I've just discovered [J. H. Hall] is considerably better " -Cheryl Nowak, Eastern Shore News Selling Fish: Stories from a Fishing Life: " Jim Hall has always been dead serious about fishing. Those of you who feel the same way will love and understand this book" -John Cole, author of Striper and In Maine
