Casting Quiet Waters is a major collection of reflections on the human condition through the lens of fishing.

In this volume of essays by some of North America’s most respected literary writers, each author takes us on a fishing trip that provides an opportunity to explore issues of the human condition. The writer and the angler both toss lines, chase shadows, and spend countless hours pondering what might have been. In life, as in fishing, the trophy always gets away. But the writer at least brings home a story.
