Stop by Orvis Flagship Store at  4180 Main St, Manchester and meet award winning author and National Geographic Expeditions expert Tim Weed. He will be presenting his new book A Field Guide to Murder and Fly Fishing. 

A high mountain lake in the Colorado Rockies is the point of departure for these stories of dark adventure, in which vividly drawn landscapes provide an immersive setting for narratives about coming of age, altered states, moral slippage, romantic love, sexual jealousy, and impenetrable loneliness. Fishing guides, amateur sportsmen, teenage misfits, scientists, mountaineers, and expatriates embark on disquieting journeys of self-discovery in far-flung places: the hazardous tidal waters of Nantucket, the granite quarries and ski slopes of New Hampshire, Venezuela's Orinoco basin, the ancient squares and alleyways of Rome and Granada, the summit of an Andean volcano, and the tension-filled streets of eastern Cuba. Classic in feel and fresh in approach, the stories in A FIELD GUIDE TO MURDER AND FLY FISHING speak to the inextricability of exterior and interior experience; to the powerful magnetism of solitude versus friendship, brotherhood, and love; and to the urgent need for a more direct engagement with the planet that sustains us.

Based in Vermont, Tim is the co-founder of the Cuba Writers Program and has served as a featured expert for National Geographic Expeditions in Cuba, Spain, Portugal, Patagonia, and Tierra del Fuego. Tim is the winner of a Writer’s Digest Popular Fiction Award and a Solas Best Travel Writing Award, and his short fiction and essays have appeared in Colorado Review, Gulf Coast, Talking Points Memo, The Millions, Fiction Writers Review, Writer’s Chronicle, Backcountry, and many others. Tim’s first novel, Will Poole’s Island (2014), was named to Bank Street College of Education’s list of the Best Books of the Year, and his newly released short fiction collection, A Field Guide to Murder & Fly Fishing (2017), was shortlisted for the New Rivers Press Many Voices Project, the Autumn House Press Fiction Prize, and the Lewis-Clark Press Discovery Award. He teaches creative writing at GrubStreet in Boston and in the MFA Creative & Professional Writing program at Western Connecticut State University.
