Dennis Dauble|Meet the Author|Bury Me with My Flyrod
Please stop by during the farmers market to meet author Dennis Dauble, who will be signing copies of his books including his newest, "Bury Me with My Flyrod."
Dennis Dauble is a retired fisheries scientist, outdoor writer, and author of the award-winning natural history guidebook, Fishes of the Columbia Basin, and three collections of short stories. His essays and articles have been published in American Angling, Fly Fisherman, Northwest Fly Fishing, Game & Fish, and other regional magazines and newspapers. His latest book, Bury Me With My Fly Rod, is about the fly fishing experience. With this new title, Dauble leads readers through a “spoke of the wheel” tour of northeastern Oregon trout streams, battles the “Mike Tyson” of Couse Creek, hikes into Spirit Mountain, and soaks flies near his cabin in the Umatilla River canyon. Regale in tales about grasshoppers on a string, beaver scat, dogs that herd trout, and how not to teach your honey to cast. Swing a fly for steelhead on the Columbia and Deschutes rivers, and chase “Brownies” on the Isle of Skye. Whether through humor, wit, or self-reflection, his personal accounts of a day on the water will entertain and inform readers of all ages.
BURY ME is a 24-story collection of stories (with secret family recipes) that lead you on a “spoke of the wheel” tour of northeastern Oregon trout streams, hikes into Spirit Mountain, and by the author’s cabin in the Umatilla River canyon. Regale in tales about grasshoppers on a string, beaver scat, dogs that herd trout, and how not to teach your honey to cast.
The stories in The Barbless Hook are drawn from a lifetime of fishing experiences and explore a range of topics anglers often don't discuss - trespassing, giving up a secret hole, losing fish at the net, competition between buddies and taking turns when on guided trips.
What do tiny bars of complimentary soap, spam sandwiches and pillow hogs have to do with fishing? When does one more "last cast" beget another? How can some people confuse fishing with ... sex? This collection of short stories answers those questions, and more.
FISHES OF THE COLUMBIA BASIN is a natural history and identification guidebook for the layperson or aspiring fishery biologist that describes the life history and behavior of over 50 species of freshwater fishes.
