Confluence: flyfishing & friendship
Book talk & signing with Phil Odence Thursday March 9th 7:00-8:30pm
Seven lifelong friends head north each June to a remote cabin at the confluence of the Dead Diamond and Swift Diamond Rivers in Northern New Hampshire. What started as a single fly-fishing trip has evolved over 20+ years into an annual retreat to the mystical environs of Dartmouth's Second College Grant, far from the workaday world and vibrant with brotherhood, creativity and reflection. Fishing is only a part of their story. In a collection of intertwined essays from seven unique voices, the authors reveal how their friendships have grown deeper as their lives flow into middle age, with laughs, tears and insight into the intersection between humanity and the natural world. The reader comes along to experience New England wilderness wonders, stinky outhouses, original watercolors, floods, a wine tasting, a dramatic search and rescue…and fly-fishing for native brook trout
Phil Odence and his co-authors, the Boys of the Grant are Renaissance fisherman and Dartmouth College classmates. He is also an avid sailor, hiker, barefoot runner and watercolor artist. Phil and his family lived in Lincoln for more than a decade and spent many hours in the library. He was a long time coach and the President of Lincoln Youth Soccer. He and wife Beth are now living in Waltham. Copies of Mr. Odence's book will be available for purchase and sale at the event.
