Social Time: 6:30pm Refreshments

Meeting: 7:00pm

Special Guest: James W. White – Author – Fly Fishing the Arctic Circle to Tasmania

Marooned on a river island above the Arctic Circle, caught by a flash flood in New
Zealand, boated with an NFL cheerleader in the Caribbean, robbed in a British
Columbia motel, and bunked with an almost-terrorist in Manitoba, this author preacher
from Colorado has had some interesting experiences when going “further
out” to fish. Twelve ebullient stories of adventure, travel, and international
fly-fishing are told here.They are undergirded by a singular autobiographical story
that weaves James White’s passion for fly-fishing with his vocation in ministry. The
book takes the reader from the Indian Ocean to the River Vltava in Bohemia. The
characters met include “two-headed” Taswegians and Lake Woebegon “strong
women.” In one story, you stand with the author on “basement of time” metamorphics,
beneath the Northern Lights in another, and before the Southern Cross in a
third. You’ll go on an “Ixthus/Christ and Ichthyology/Fishing” retreat. With the
stories are illuminating photographs of giant rainbows, massive moose antlers, and
“Jesus Rays” coming through a Ukrainian Orthodox church cupola. e book leads
to rumination on Henry David Thoreau’s observation that “Men may go fishing all
their life and never know it’s not fish they’re after.”
