I just realized I never put up a review of this book and that's unacceptable.
The Alaska Chronicles by Miles Nolte is a real life account of what its really like to be a Fly Fishing guide in Alaska for a season, told by a guy who's actually experienced it for himself. Though he also holds a Bachelor's in English, he utilizes a spartan writing style that paints a vivid picture of the experience without bogging the reader down with cumbersome or flowery verbage. I read this book at about 3x the rate I read most anything, and wished for a sequel before I even finished the thing.
I also had the privilege of hanging out with Miles for a weekend during his first time fishing the TX Coast, and can verify that he is truly a nice guy that the sport of Fly Fishing is lucky to have as an asset.
I agree with BigCliff. I read this book about a month or so ago and truly enjoyed it. Great writing and a real insight to what it is like to guide in Alaska during the summer. Miles covers the warts and all. I would highly recommend it.
