Beloved Waters is about the unforgettable where fantasy is transformed by magic to reality. It is of tidal water and rivers, fish and fishers. You will wade a small tidal flow in foggy silence where chinook and coho of incredible strength come to the fly. You will see a lithe, silver ballerina dance white-capped Stilliaguamish riffle water, and ferocious Dean River steelhead destroy a fisher's bragged-on new fly reel. You will smile as an angler on Isla Holbox off the Yucatan hooks a giant tarpon without so much as a cast. You will encounter the charge of a giant trevally and hear the guide intone, "Better he take bonefish than come eat us." And always within beloved waters, as with life itself, you will be touched by the uncertainty of certainty.
