At age eighty, Tony Taylor journeys from Sydney to British Columbia to fish the Cowichan River with his eight-year-old grandson, Ned. This trip is an opportunity for Tony to return to a landscape that has had a profound effect on his life and his way of thinking, and to share this place with his grandson. As Tony teaches Ned the patient art of fly-fishing, a lifetime of memories, thoughts and stories unspool in peaceful reflections by the water's edge. Fishing the River of Time
"A wise and wonderful book flowing with love for the life of the Earth - human, animal, the great woods, and the deep slow pulse of rock and water. Being about 'something more important than fish,' Tony Taylor's book will delight all who angle for the great and wild things, above all beauty and truth." - Ronald Wright, author of A Short History of Progress. "A superb mix of natural history, biography - and fishing. Not to be missed." - Tim Flannery.
