The Lure of the Little

by Ron P. Swegman

Small Fry: The Lure of the Little is a literary study of small fish and small waters; a survey of fly fishing literature, and a personal memoir contrasting youthful fishing stories with contemporary angling adventures. The author's search for small fry on the fly takes him to places as remote as the small streams in the Appalachian Mountains and as urban as the ponds in Manhattan's Central Park. Laced with the humor and the poetry of experience, Small Fry reveals why "the lure of the little" is a passion worth catching.
