A heartwarming picture book about fishing and family

Today is Art’s favorite kind of day. He loves driving down to the river with Mom, Grandpa, and all of their gear for a day of fly fishing. At the river, Art watches and listens. He watches the different kinds of trout that live in the riverbed. He watches his Mom’s perfect, well-practiced cast. He listens to Grandpa’s stories about fishing and family and this very special bend in the river.

A perfect introduction to fly fishing, Down by the River is a celebration of the power of the sport to draw families together and back to cherished natural places. It is a multigenerational family story and the heart of the book is Art’s relationship with his grandfather.

Based on the author's own decades of experience fly fishing, the book exudes a strong regard for nature. It includes extensive backmatter about conservation and fly-fishing equipment and techniques.
