"George Patterson is one of Australia's best known advertising men. His life has been crammed with exciting incident and great achievement. But through most of his life he has had a passion for fishing and a deep and abiding love for the fabulously beautiful "high country" of Australia, the wilderness where trout abound in turbulent streams, and a man can be as far from a disturbing world as he wants to be. This book by George Patterson is really the story of any man who loves fishing and the Australian outdoors - the story of the fish and the rivers, the mates and the will remembered camps, told as simply and entertainingly as in a conversation between friends, by a man to whom fishing for trout will always be a pleasure without equal." - From a dust jacket blurb.
