Lodge in the gut – new cookbook points at the real reason we fish

When fly fishermen talk about lodge culture, freemasonry is the last thing on their mind.

Instead, they’re thinking of the final flourish of a day’s fishing, the distant light and wisps of smoke that summon the angler home at dusk; the roaring fire and smell of cooking that assails the senses as he removes his boots; the simple, womb-like haven that is the fishing lodge.

Capture the adventure and good eating of the sporting life through 150 full-color images and 140 recipes from 40 of the greatest sporting lodges in the United States and Canada.”
