A new book by PA local write, I thoroughly enjoyed it, well researched and a fun read. Jay Day won an award a few years back for a short article in Fly Rod and Reel.
HEre's the link, and enjoy it, it's a must read for Hemingway fans, and those who just like to read about fishing.

Thanks Chaz, I remember the article.

I have to get to Michigan one day, like most nor'easterners I guess it holds some fishing mystique for us, much like Maine woods do for many.

Added to my read list for sure.

I was lucky enough to spend a month in Michigan last June. The Two Hearted and Fox Rivers are amazing little gems.

btw - the Complete Angler by James Prosek is a good read in a similar vein i think.

I just read that book about a month ago. Good read. Not long. It was free on my Kindle for Amazon Prime members too.

Since I never read any of Hemmingway's novels, I was unfamiliar with the "Big Two Hearted River", but now I am aware of where one of my favorite beers got its name . . .

I'm going to be moving to Michigan for the summers-maybe I will find it.

yeah
met someone with house on lake in Michigan
and one on lake in Vero Beach
invited her to move in here-she said no way she is going to live in a trailer.
Looks like I'm going to be doing a lot of bass fishing.

If you're talking about Bells, I agree! Great beer.
