Welcome to Travers Corners, a dusty Montana town, where nothing much has happened since Herbert Hoover stopped for gas. Travers Corners, like most small towns, has no newspaper, no radio station; but here, large troutano better than large trout, fictitious troutaawait the angler. And apart from spreading gossip outside the McCrakenas General Store, the residents of Travers Corners love nothing more than fly fishing. Scott Waldieas delightful cast of characters breathes life into this tiny, out-of-the-way town. Meet Judson C. Clarke, boat builder and some-time guide down the waters of Carrie Creek. Judas best friend Henry knows his way around just about everything, and has a story and a laugh for everyone. Meet Dolores, the belle of Travers Corners; Sarah, who fled from New York City in search of quiet and community; Doc, who loves his profession and fly fishingaand not necessarily in that ordera; Ed, the mechanic whoas too patriotic to work on imports; and so many more enormous personalities. Waldieas warmth, wit, and shrewd eye for characterization, evokes a deep nostalgia for times past and quirky communities. For fly fishers everywhere, Travers Corners will be a second home.TheBuick Hole isna#39;t ahole really, but more ofa side channelcreated bydriftwood and a1949 Roadmaster.
