For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form

Inspiration comes in various ways and not all are required to have such a need. I for one require this and seem to get it most from this book. I have a modest library, most texts are of interests relating to fly fishing, but they are not of the "how to" type of books but books of actual happenings.
"Voelker's Pond" is a book about Robert Traver and a place called Frenchman's Pond. The location of Frenchman's is in the woods of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The pond and it's resident brook trout, the "cabin" and the fellows of Voelker's crew are all mentioned and tied into what is life there.
The peace and serenity of Frenchman's is brought forth on almost every page of this journal. I have had this book in my possession for perhaps ten years and I read from it almost daily.
So if your somewhat tired of reading about the fact that your 12 ft leader is not long enough, and the fly your using need a wrap of peacock herl to be effective, or perhaps that 8ft rod should really really be 9 feet. Then your ready to read "Voelker's Pond"
