Desert Fishing Lessons
Adventures in Australia's Rivers by Adam Kerezsy.
I spend an inordinate amount of time grubbing around muddy waterholes and rivers, thinking about the why and how of fish that live in specific areas. Fish and deserts are unusual bedfellows, but that's the way it is.
In Desert Fishing Lessons, Kerezsy takes us on a rollicking journey through our arid-zone waterways and introduces us to the tough-as-nails critters that live in them; he shows us that we have much to learn from our healthy desert rivers, presents a compelling case to preserve them, and, using them as his guide, he outlines ways in which we can prevent further degradation of the Murray-Darling system.
