SHUPTON'S FANCY: A TALE OF THE FLY-FISHING OBSESSION. By Paul Schullery.

1996 1st edition. 8vo (142 x 217mm). Ppviii,69. B/w illustrations from old engravings. Grey paper-covered boards, black cloth spine titled in gilt.

A slim erudite flyfishing mystery. "Scholarship, mystery, a little whimsy - only Paul Schullery could have composed this unique fly-fishing novel". (Steve Bodio). "The piercing cynicism of the narrator keeps you laughing; the fascinating historical puzzle keeps you wondering; and the philosophical insights into our way-too-serious quest for fly fishing perfection keeps you thinking... You'll never be able to forget this book". (Gary LaFontaine). "Paul's tale of a fly fisherman's quest for the Holy Grail takes its seat in that line of brief but bright works that you absolutely must read". (Dave Hughes). "This is an extraordinary little book - funny, deep, and at once breezy and complex. Its language is admirable and its humor barbed and sly. But amid the wit and persiflage, Schullery nails down the essence of the sport as well as anyone I've read. The ending sent me outside to smoke and think. I'm still thinking". (Art Scheck).
