    What a beautiful world it was once At least a river of it was and what a joy it turned out to be visiting this world under the guidance of Norman Maclean The joy doesn t ignore the pain and the sadness at the core of the title novella, but acknowledges the treasures buried in the text a hard won wisdom and serenity and most of all the satisfaction of a job so well done that it becomes a work of art, regardless if it is the capture of a trout with a Bunyan Bug No 2 Yellow Stone Fly, a What a beautiful world it was once At least a river of it was and what a joy it turned out to be visiting this world under the guidance of Norman Maclean The joy doesn t ignore the pain and the sadness at the core of the title novella, but acknowledges the treasures buried in the text a hard won wisdom and serenity and most of all the satisfaction of a job so well done that it becomes a work of art, regardless if it is the capture of ...
