The philosophical link is apparent to him: "If we can discipline ourselves to cast a
line with perfection, perhaps we can impose order on — or perceive some
inherent order within — the chaos of daily existence"; fly fishing is a useful and
common literary device to contact "the heart of life's abiding mysteries" (30). Yet
even more than Maclean's and Hemingway s work, Raines s prose and his aim in
writing Fly Fishing through the Midlife Crisis remind me of Henry David Thoreau ...
