Highly introspective and at times brutally candid, author Brian Ellig, in a writing style reminiscent of THE WALTONS, reveals his very soul in this poignant memoir chronicling his extraordinarily long and trying journey in search of his true essence.

Kohler, WI (I-Newswire) June 27, 2013 – Ellig’s portrayal of the words of wisdom gifted him by special people passing his way are absorbing, as is his depiction of the contemplative nature of fly fishing. Replete with introspective quotes by luminaries of both the fly fishing and political arenas, of yester-year and today; inspirational verse that will tug at your very soul, whether a fly fisher or not; and an emotional account of four very special cannine companions that, too, made the better part of the long journey home; this thought provoking and sensitive memoir speaks to the human consciousness in so many ways, at so many levels. It will be sure to speak to yours as well.

An Angler’s Memoir of Passion Realized and Redeemed, May 14, 2013
By Elizabeth Barbarick

Format: Kindle Edition – An Angler’s Memoir of Passion Realized and Redeemed

Brian Ellig writes a memoir about how the discovery of fly fishing has taught him to focus in the world and make his life less stressful. He goes into great detail about the sport, so for anyone interested in fly fishing, this would be a great book for you. I’m sure you might even learn a thing or two.

Mr. Ellig goes through the up’s and down’s of life, but his fly fishing remains a constant. I personally do not fly fish, nor have I ever been, but I can clearly see what an impact it had on Brian Ellig and can respect the meaning behind the sport.

You probably haven’t read anything written like Mr. Ellig’s work, with his unique writing style that doesn’t quite fit into any one category. He writes on and on about his life, and it feels as if you’re sitting on the other side of a table listening to an old friend recap good times.

His words paint a perfect image in my head as to what I am reading, which is always extremely appreciative while reading a new book. Overall, I would give this book a 5/5 for it’s amazing writing style and intriguing and capturing words.
