It was a no-brainer for me that I wanted to set my characters deep in the heart of Wisconsin's northwoods, a place I love to travel every summer. I have spent many a summer canoeing the Flambeau River (on which "The Fisherman's Nymph" is set), swimming in the rapids, camping on its shores, and swatting away its black flies.
So Abby was created. A melancholy soul who cherishes her privacy along her river, fishing the Flambeau's off-shoots with the newer-to-fishing style, fly fishing. She's an artist, a woodswoman, and above all, a loyal daughter who finds reconciling the recreational boom of the wealthy to outdoor sports appalling when so many in the world could put that money to much better, more charitable, uses.
Charles Farrington the Third is a flirt. It almost lends him toward a special kind of immaturity--the flippant kind. It's as if the world is his play to play and blinders hide his eyes from the realities of a harsh world. A world Abby cannot escape, even in her refuge along the Flambeau river.
As their worlds collide, sparks fly, and first impressions prove how very false they can really be.
Yes, I have spent many hours fly-fishing, like our heroine Abby. The streams and strategy to catching a trout takes finesse and much study of the waters. It was so fun to write this into Abby's vision, and so challenging to show Charles' unappreciative spirit for the sport.
Hopefully, you will all enjoy a jaunt to the northwoods and even some fly-fishing experiences with Charles and Abby. You don't have to love fishing to be caught up in their romance, hook, line, and well . . . nymph.
Do you know what a 'nymph' references in association with fly-fishing? Have you ever fly-fished or been interested in fly-fishing? What are your thoughts about flirtatious heroes and the women who love them? :)
