    Speaker: Chris Santella

    Topic: The Tug is the Drug
    Chris combines some readings from his latest book, The Tug is the Drug, and some of his original fly fishing songs. His peripatetic lifestyle and eye for entertaining details--even those that have little to do with the act of throwing flies at fish--will make you look at fishing in a whole different way.He is the author of 19 books, including Fifty Places To Fly Fish Before You Die. The Tug is the Drug Book Description

    FISHING ADVENTURES FROM THE AUTHOR OF 50 PLACES TO FLY FISH BEFORE YOU DIE

    These thirty stories take readers from leaping makos near the fairways of Torrey Pines to midnight Atlantic salmon fishing on the fabled Ponoi to encounters with very friendly mujeres on the streets of Havana . . . and even offer an unauthorized (yet unequivocal) account of Bob Dylan’s 1970s obsession with fishing. Santella’s peripatetic lifestyle and eye for entertaining details--even those that have little to do with the act of throwing flies at fish--will make you look at fishing in a whole different way.
