CHRIS SANTELLA - The Inspiration of Fly Fishing

Saturday, June 8 at 5PM
Gear Up for Father's Day
with Author & Fly Fisher


Is it the solitude of beauty of the natural settings where fish live?  Is it the grace of casting?  Or the singlemindedness of purpose the sport demands?  Popular fly fishing author and New York Times contributor Chris Santella will speak on the appeal and inspiration of fly fishing, based on his two newest books, Why I Fly Fish: Passionate Anglers on the Pastime's Appeal and How it Has Shaped Their Lives and The Hatch is On: Experts Extol the Worlds Greatest Hatches and the Flies They've Inspired.

CHRIS SANTELLA is the author of 14 books, including the bestselling Fifty Places series from Stewart, Tabori & Chang, which includes Fifty Places To Bike Before You Die, Fifty Places To Play Golf Before You Die and Fifty Places To Fly Fish Before You Die.  He’s based in Portland, Oregon.

In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.
