Following In The Footsteps…, Jay Thurston

This engaging book on trout fishing contains some stories with reference to certain Michigan rivers. Among others mentioned are stories of fishing the Brule River, Fox River, Two Hearted River plus many others. The lead story is a tale of the Hemingway story, and the author and his two friends found what they feel was a spot on the Two Hearted River where Hemingway may have fished.

This is a collection of stories the author first wrote and had published in The Ashland (Wisconsin) Daily Press. Thurston, a retired school teacher, writes mostly of his native Wisconsin but many stories have a distinctive Michigan flavor.

I’ve had this book for some time, and didn’t review it because I was fighting a vision problem, but the time has come and trout season is on its way. This is a book that Michigan anglers should enjoy because it deals with some of our better Upper Peninsula trout streams.
