A superb book, a collection of observations, reflections and experiences by one of the great angling writers of this or any generation. McGuane's diverse pieces on fish and fishing range geographically from his beloved Montana, to the Andes, to the Russian Arctic, and in subject from equipment ("A rod better have a great reason for being over nine feet or under eight. Nine is a wonderful length for a trout, tarpon, and billfish rod. It's a length the human body likes.") to picturesque angling companions and the enduring challenges of the sport. John Swan's watercolors are a worthy enhancement This de luxe edition was sold out upon publication, and it is easy to see why.

From the colophon: "This is one of one thousand five hundred copies of LIVE WATER published by Meadow Run Press in January, 1996. The text is set in Palatino, a typeface designed in 1948 by Hermann Zapf, and is printed on eighty pound Mohawk Superfine. The illustrations are by the painter, John Swan of Portland, Maine. John paints when the fishing is slow. A deluxe edition of LIVE WATER will be produced at the end of 1996." From Thomas McGuane's Introduction: "The sport of angling used to be a genteel business, at least in the world of ideals, a world of ladies and gentlemen. These have been replaced by a new set of paradigmatic persons: the bum, the addict and the maniac. I'm afraid that this tells us as much about the times we live in. The fisherman now is one who defies society, who rips lips, who drains the pool, who takes no prisoners; not to be confused with the sissy with the creel and the bamboo rod. Granted, he releases that which he catches; but in some cases, he strips the quarry of its perilous soul before tossing it back in the water. What was once a trout, cold, hard, spotted and beautiful, becomes 'number seven.' … These delights have sent me in search of second class waters… [where] I find solitude which, take note, is not the same thing as loneliness.". First Edition. Hardcover. Fine condition/Fine dust jacket. Illus. by Swan, John. 8vo. (xiv), 135pp.
