Call for Submissions: New Writing about Fly Fishing (Collection: updated
deadline 10/21/2005)
As fly fishing drifts downstream into the 21st century, anglers are
faced with over-pressured streams and lakes, declining water quality,
and public indifference. In spite of this, we fish. Why? What do we
get out of it? This proposed collection, Fishing the Angles: New
Writing about Fly Fishing, is looking for works that capture the meaning
and magic (or the lack of meaning and magic) of this most literary of
Outdoor Sports. Though works may well veer off into other areas, fishing
or nature should at least be more than tangential to the story. In
other words, tell us-show us-what fly fishing means and how it works.
 Fishing the Angles seeks:

o Fiction
o Poetry
o Memoir
o Creative Non-Fiction
o History
o Criticism

Prose works should be less than 5000 words. Previously published
works-prose and poetry-are acceptable. Email submissions are preferred,
as attachments in .rtf or .doc format or pasted into the body of the
