Ranging from the riotously comic to the nostalgic, edgy, and suspenseful, these sixteen stories offer richly developed and engaging portraits of characters across the spectrum of life, all absorbed by the thrill of fly fishing. A marriage betrayal on a trout stream in the north woods, a young boy's coming of age as a fly fisherman in the Black Hills of South Dakota, angler rage on the redfish flats of the Gulf of Mexico, an epic quest for bullish rainbows in Montana's celebrated Bighorn, the quiet mystique of Wisconsin's Brule River, the intensity of combat fishing on a salmon pool in the Pacific Northwest, these are just a few of the fascinating tales of fly fishing offered in Sunlit Riffles and Shadowed Runs. Rendered in sparkling prose that will resonate with every angler, this collection will also delight any reader who enjoys outdoor pastimes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This collection of stories, covering two decades of his work, shows that he is among the best writers in this genre."--"Minneapolis Star Tribune"

"Experienced fly fishers will appreciate many more angles in "Riffles" stories than others will because it's written for us."--"Fly Rod & Reel Magazine"

"[Cowgill's] ability to relate places--as well as personalities--is on par with the best fishing writers in the craft, past or present. . . . Cowgill does much more than take you fishing: He immerses you in the culture."--"Trout Unlimited"

These stories are sometimes quiet, sometimes raucous, and sometimes quirky, but they all look at fishing and fishermen with the kind of sidelong glance you might not expect. John Gierach, editor at large of Fly Rod & Reel magazine"
