Imagine the opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime, the offspring of a sabertooth salmon that swam the earth’s rivers 11 million years ago. The government will outfit your expedition and pay you a handsome sum to do it. And you can bring along your favorite fishing buddy. Not a bad way to earn a living.
So begins the new story from George Douglas, River of Monsters. The book’s 124 pages follows the fishing exploits of fly fishing expert Jeff Warner and his friend Rick Porter as they chase the a special strain of salmon spawned from prehistoric eggs.
These fish are big, aggressive, and have a glowing red stripe that runs from the tail to the adipose fin. They exist in the Talon River in British Columbia, in a stretch of river that contains class 3, 4, and 5 rapids. Although the government will pay Jeff to verify the existence of this fish, they’ll pay even more if he brings one back alive.
If you ‘re looking for a quick read that mixes adventure fly fishing with a little sci-fi, then this book is for you. This book was written with teens and young adults in mind, so it would make a great summer reader as well.
