Booktalk: Angler and Travel Writer David Coggins’s “The Believer. A Year In The Fly Fishing Life”

Host Diana Korte speaks with Fly Fisherman David Coggins, author of his fourth book, “The Believer”.

He brings readers along for an enchanting year of fly fishing in Patagonia, Cuba, Belize, Spain, Scotland, Norway, and the U.S. And of course, it’s about more than just the fish. He deftly mixes travel, local cultures, further fishing challenges (some knee-buckling in their disappointment) and details his own experience as life and love crowd his time to fish.

And, since this is fly fishing, after all—there’s always the possibility of abject failure and leaping, glorious reward.
