Johnson Books Boulder 1994. 8vo 163p. ad. Map. soft cover. An American’s experiences flyfishing in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania and in the North and South islands of New Zealand. The author, when a senior writer with the Calgary Herald, had ten months to spend as he wished and decided to "Come down under” to flyfish the lands of kookaburra’s, kiwis and twenty four inch trout. Dawson took a backwoods approach to his trip and tells his story in an interesting but with a "bit of tongue in his cheek” humour. "Dawson understands that there’s more to a long fishing trip than fish. There are people, places, customs, beers and in this case Kangeroos.”-John Gierach. –Mint
