Product Description


An endearing fishing cabin and the rivers of rural Wisconsin are the setting for these entertaining and educational angling stories. Presenting the different experiences of a dozen anglers who stay at the cabin - all drawn to the magnetism and hidden charm of the Midwestern waters - these tales offer expert tips for stream fishing, such as wearing river branches as camouflage to approach the trout. Recollections detail the cabin's evolution from a minimum-comfort farmhouse, complete with resident mice and soaring bats but without running water, to a more comfortable Le Shack II that features plumbing and lacks rodent guests. Inspiring and informative, anglers and non-anglers alike will delight in the charismatic guests of this fishing shack.

HASH(0x9161ce64) out of 5 stars Right here in Wisconsin 22 Oct. 2010
By Ahma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What a delightful surprise about fishing, which is not my thing! I know the illustrator and decided to see what this book is about. It's one you can't put down because of the special connection with these fishermen and this place in central Wisconsin that brings them together. It's part nature, part psychology, part geography, part comedy, part tragedy, part mystery, part fantasy, but pure enjoyment. I may even take up fishing! This all took place less than an hour from my home. I have such great new appreciation for my corner of the world and for men who find their passion in this sport.
HASH(0x8fea99f0) out of 5 stars A wonderful compliation of short stories 14 Dec. 2007
By induchman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful compliation of short stories by a master story-teller. Chapralis captures the imagination of anglers world wide with the antics of a mouse, a hippo and truly speaks from the heart. I'm sorry he couldn't have autograhed my book.
HASH(0x8fa1c804) out of 5 stars Can I visit? 19 Jun. 2012
By Chicago Angler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved this book! Great fish stories. I am from Chicago and travel to Wisconsin often to fly fish for trout. It's like deer camp for fly fishing. I would love to visit it someday!
