Captain Marvel greeted us but had been booked with another group, so he handed us off to a young, handsome kid named Steve. Steve was on the LSU swim team and looked it. He was as sleek as the boat he drove-very fast-and at the shoulders seemed very nearly as wide.

Being the second book in the trilogy for Travers Corners, it provided more then enough good reading for its characters in the story. Because of the long relationships of some of the characters, it allows the author to go back in time to let the reader understand how the current situation came to be - which really helps to see into the characters of the story. This second book provided its own very good reading, but also provided a great linch pin into the third bood. For those who enjoy good reading of what a small town is like, Travers Corners is a must read.

I discovered Scott Waldie from a fly shop owner in Nashville one Saturday when I stepped in to buy some flies. He told me that Travers Corners was one of the best book that he'd ever read. Then he told me that Return to Travers Corners was even better. I was skeptical because Travers Corners was amazing. The second book in this series lives up to the first and surpasses it in some ways.

It is not a series of fishing essays that only an angler would pick up but a series of deeply moving stories about small town life in rural Montana. The stories are loosely based on a real town and people. However, fly fishing and the laid-back philosophy that often accompanies it find their way into every story in an unobtrusive way. One of them will move any reader, regardless of his or her feelings on fishing.

This book reads quick and if you want to read it, you should get all three of Scott Waldie's books because you want to read them one after the other.

His writing is so descriptive you are drawn right into the stories. Well developed characters and a sly sense of humor keep you turning pages. Loved all the stories and look forward to reading more from Scott Waldie.

I cannot get enough of this series. Well written and puts your mind right there with Jud, Henry and the rest of the gang in Travers Corners.
In my opinion even if not a flyfisher you will enjoy these books.
Mr. Scott Waldie, thank you for putting a smile in my heart. Your books are fantastic.

This is the middle book of the trilogy, and stands tall as entertaining. A great revisit with literary friends.

The second book in my favorite series of all times. After reading these books, my wife and I searched out the author and became good friends with he and his wife. Sadly Scott passed a few years ago, but these books continue to bring the memories of our friendship and the Montana lifestyle blazing back each time we reread them.

More thoroughly delightful stories about life in that wonderful small town with those vivid, likable characters. Scott Waldie truly had a gift.....a simple, beautiful gift. I started to read slower because I didn't want it to end. I ordered his third and final book of stories the minute I finished this second one. So sad that Mr. Waldie passed away.
Poor Scott Waldie. He is one of the gifted writers of our time but he has been relegated to the backwater of fly fishing stories. Not a huge potential audience there. Especially, not a large feminine audience (i.e., the ones who actually buy books). Furthermore, he doesn't compete well with Gerach and Holt in terms of, "and then I caught a 26 inch brown but Jack caught a 27 inch rainbow," which appeal to the guys who buy these books.

BUT

Waldie is alone in being able to weave together stories about a semi-fictional town with its visitors, part-timers, and residents that truly capture the good and bad about the popularization of the Northwest.

His stories would lose no relevance if he would write them using tennis, polo, or canasta as the common thread because they are really about people and how they interact. They expose the good and the bad and how they intersect in a delightful and thoughtful manner and in the process his writing flows with more memorable lines than you can count.

Hopefully, he will soon find an agent or publisher who will market him for the gifted writer that he is, rather than pushing him into an eddy that he cannot row out of (pardon the dangling participle).
