Raif Mair's Experiences with Fly Fishing. Rafe Mair takes some time away from his CKNW studio to share with readers a light-hearted look at fly-fishing. Full of anecdotes about the fishing life of an admitted klutz, the book provides useful advice about the arts of fly-fishing and tying flies. The Last Cast is a most enjoyable read for anyone who fishes or is thinking about fishing.
