Helicopter Fly Fishing

I really tried to finish reading Thomas McGuane's The Longest Silence. I couldn't stomach it anymore and had to stop. McGuane is an accomplished writer, but, make sure you have a thesaurus at your side. He enjoys the sound of his own writing.

I'm certain he is a good fly fisherman as you can become a good fly fisherman if you have the cash to fish stocked private waters and/or venture into remote and exotic locations.  McGuane also runs in elite one of his stories he feels guilty about flying up and down the Dean River, British Columbia, Canada, in a helicopter covering the best parts of the river in the least amount of time.  Come on!   Would you really want to go fly fishing with this guy?
