Making peace with the world, sooner or later most of us have to. But how?
For Ian Mac Bride, his way begins almost accidentally when, in 1909, he watches a fly-casting tournament in New York's Central Park, and begins to dream of becoming a great fly caster.
But soon Ian experiences personal tragedy, and then is appalled by the unexpected slaughter of World War I.
He retreats into the world of fly fishing and fly casting, and meets unforgettable anglers like: Doc, a Civil War veteran, who tells how, after he enlisted in return for drinking money, he was unexpectedly changed by the horror of war; Izzy, a mysterious immigrant, who, in his way, teaches Ian perhaps the most important lesson of long-distance fly casting; and George M. L. La Branche who, though torn by self-doubt, writes the book that revolutionizes fly fishing.
And so, these anglers help change Ian's hopes and values. Though his father questions his courage, Ian decides to become a teacher instead of a ...
