There is new way to introduce kids to fly fishing. Story time and fly fishing come together in the new book Down By The River by Andrew Weiner and illustrated by April Chu.

Growing up in Central Wisconsin, one of the highlights of my summers was fishing with my grandfather. Grandpa was a very successful businessman, yet at his core, family came first.

Many of my greatest memories came from my times fishing with him. Most of those times occurred on a lake while sitting in an aluminum boat. Then there were the times we went fly fishing together in the Colorado Rockies.

Down by the River Review

Down by the River is about a young boy named Art. Art spends the day fly fishing with his mom and grandpa. The story follows Art and his family as they share a special bond brought about by the love of fly fishing. While reading Down by the River with my son and daughter, memories of fishing with my grandfather came flooding back. I will admit I teared up a little.

Best of all, when we finished reading the book, there was a light in my son’s eyes. I asked him if he would like to go fishing with Daddy soon. With a huge smile on his face he said, “Can we go after it gets light?”

Along with an awesome story about the meaning of family and fly fishing, there is so much more.

The illustrations in Down by the River are truly wonderful to browse. Each illustration is bold and beautiful, adding an appealing visual feature. With amazing illustrations the draw of nature and fly fishing come together in a cohesive visual.

Included at the end of Down by the River are a couple of pages talking about fly fishing and its gear. I found these snippets to be useful when introducing this amazing sport to children.
