Anglers tell the best stories. 

Since Anglers Journal began publishing, we have always included book recommendations for our readers. With that in mind, we've decided to launch the Anglers Journal Book Club. 

The Book Club will meet virtually once per quarter via Zoom to discuss a book written by anglers on or about the sport of fishing. We've decided to begin the Book Club with Norman Maclean's seminal work, A River Runs Through It

This story made a massive impact on fly-fishing after it was published in 1976 and turned into the popular movie starring Brad Pitt in 1992. It is an honest, beautifully written tale about Maclean's brother Paul, who was beaten to death. The first sentence of the book immediately draws the reader in: "In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly-fishing." 

So pick up a copy of the book (or reread the one on your shelf), grab a drink and join us. The first Book Club meeting will take place in late February '23 and we will post all of the details soon.

Sign up for the Book Club via this link and we will keep you informed on the meeting date, time and log in information.
