Few books have captured the haunting world of music and rivers and of the sport they provide as well as A River Never Sleeps. Roderick L. Haig-Brown writes of fishing not just as a sport, but also as an art. He knows moving water and the life within it—its subtlest mysteries and perpetual delights. He is a man who knows fish lore as few people ever will, and the legends and history of a great sport. Month by month, he takes you from river to river, down at last to the saltwater and the sea: in January, searching for the steelhead in the dark, cold water; in May, fishing for bright, sea-run cutthroats; and on to the chilly days of October and the majestic run of spawning salmon. All the great joy of angling is here: the thrill of fishing during a thunderstorm, the sight of a river in freshet or a river calm and hushed, the suspense of a skillful campaign to capture some half-glimpsed trout or salmon of extraordinary size, and the excitement of playing and landing a momentous fish. A River Never Sleeps is one of the enduring classics of angling. It will provide a rich reading experience for all who love fishing or rivers.

For the longest time, I held off reading any Haig-Brown because I didn't identify with the main advocates, those (seemingly) elitist fly fishermen on Internet message boards. About a decade ago I picked up a used copy of "Fisherman's Fall" (his second best book)and marveled at the man's ability to tell a story -- mostly about fish and fishing -- so clearly and lyrically. In short order I learned that RH-B moved to Canada post WWI as teen and earned a living any which way he could, including falling timber and trolling spoons on heavy spinning gear for VI springs. Nothing effete about this fellow! I was well and truly hooked and have read another half dozen of his books (including the four seasons books).

But the jewel in the crown is ARNS. Haig-Brown's personal story so worth reading that my non-fishing 70 year mother rated it one of the better non-fiction books she'd ever read. Rod Brown led such a fascinating life in a time and place that offered sport fishing opportunities few of us will ever see . . . and certainly none in native English speaking countries. His love of rivers, forests, and people shows itself not in some philosophical meanderings, but in a vital sense of shared excitement at discovery and participation. Here's a man who wanted to know where the fish lay in his home water, the Campbell River. Rod wriggled into a wetsuit, put on a mask, snorkel and flippers and swam the river, diving down to spy the chinooks holding in the deep all the other salmon and trout in between. To test whether or not waders would fill with water and pull the wrong-footed angler to the bottom of the river to tumble and inevitably drown in those lead (sic) boots, he put on his waders and walked out over his head to see what happened. (Not a whole lot other than getting wet and needing to point his feet downstream to prevent hitting his head on boulders.) Haig-Brown was also an innovative and expert fly fishermen, pioneering the dead drifted dry fly for summer run steelhead. His stories of long-gone fishing holes and extinct runs of salmonids heighten the pleasure fishing addicts like myself derive from reading and thinking, "What would it have been like to have stood on the banks on the Stamp watching the General fish his run?"

A well-lived life in and around fishing, in a beautifully told book.

Love the book, is a great story about life and its evolving cycle through the life of man looked from a fly fishing angler view. If you don't fly fish or fish you could find here what life is, is not a fly fishing book, is a book written through the eyes of a fly fisherman that ads a bucolic sense to the book.
Great reading for everyone, of course a fly fisherman would love it even more ;)

Just a terrific book! If you enjoy stories about the outdoors and fishing written with elegance not seen much these days, you will appreciate "A River Never Sleeps."

Is there anything that Haig-Brown didn't do in his life time? Great book. It takes you back to a time when it sounds like the fishing was a heck of a lot better than it is today and the men who fished were determined to do whatever it took to catch fish. I wished I could have met Haig-Brown.

Superb :-)
A must read

Roderick Haig-Brown was a true pioneer not only in the genre of Fly Fishing literature but he was an early advocate for strong conservation policies. Much of his blilliance lies in his ability to use everyday words to bring his history and his love for fly fishing and the outdoors to life.

I had missed out on this man's work when I was younger. At last, when pushed by a fishing buddy, I have read several of his books. Any naturalist, fisherperson or not, should read this book

My husband is an avid fisherman, from boyhood. He has recently become enchanted with flyfishing and this was the perfect read for him. Well written, great story (or so he says) and highly recommended.
