Local Author Publishes Book Waterville Valley—Raymond Kucharski recently published a book titled, On The Waters: The Joys of Fly-Fishing. He has been writing about fly-fishing and the joys of being outdoors for over 10 years and has over a half century of field experiences to write about. The book is a compilation of fishing stories that appeared in Waterville Valley’s Wig Wag, the Plymouth Record Enterprise newspaper column Fins & Feathers, the American Angler and Flyfishing & Tying Journal magazines. Birdie Britton, editor of the Waterville Valley Wig Wag wrote “To read these short essays of fishing adventures by Ray Kucharski you come to appreciate the joy he gets from each fishing day and each cast he makes. The stories are not only charming but also informative about ways of catching the wily fish. Each story describes the delight that an avid fisherman like Ray feels for the sport of fishing. One gains many insights and some important learning lessons for life that this sport gives to all those who do it.” My husband David and I, editors of the small paper, encouraged Ray to put these many stories together as a group of essays. I am sure you will enjoy these tales of New Hampshire and New England fishing as our readers have. Even if you are not a fisherman you will not be bored. I never was.” On The Waters: The Joys of Fly-Fishing, is available online at www.amazon.com, www.barnsandnoble.com, and www.iuniverse.com. It is also available at the Waterville Valley book store, the BookMonger.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. Henry David Thoreau
