I bought a book off ebay a while ago. Its a book called Dances with Trout by John Gierach.
Anyway, it had an inscription. It was stated in the auction so I was not bothered but the more I read it the more I wondered.
I hope we can find some time to dance with some of those infamous english trout. ? this spring.
It intrigues me. Why did the dad get rid of a book from his son? especially as it was inscribed. When it comes to books I can read them over and over again……… a bit like listening to a good song time and time again but this is kinda different. Maybe the father died and all his books were sold off or something. I mean it seems like a “loving” kind of inscription doesnt it? I think it does anyway…..its memories. Maybe the father and son had fallen out and the son had bought the book as a peace offering. It was over 10 years ago that the inscription was made.
