Author Ted Leeson offers a philosophical approach to trout fishing--its principles, skills, and therapeutic value. Starting with geological facts about creeks and streams, he wanders about his subject as though searching for a place to angle. There are a few fishing anecdotes; more of them and less philosophy might have made the audiobook more entertaining to general readers. Lloyd James's narration adds needed expression and a sense of engagement to some rather sleepy writing. He enunciates and speaks without haste; his soft, gentle voice would not scare a sardine. Unfortunately, such softness leads to the dropping of some words to inaudible levels at the ends of sentences. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
