Hardcover book. 187 pages. 9″ x 5.9″ x 1″. Published 10/2017.
About the Book: The tales from Holy Water flow from Jerry’s days as owner of Sweetgrass Rods. With humor and reverence the stories relate hidden insights into life while pursing retirement dreams from Montana to Mexico to Maryland. The book’s final story symbolically sums up the journey of his life in a monumental series of road trips to northeastern Canada in search of Atlantic Salmon with his wife of thirty years who died in 2009. Along the way, Kustich has discovered that all water is holy. Since it is in the nature of rivers to inspire, he concludes that: “One leads to another, and then another. They flow on forever and forever connected…”
About the Author: Jerry is a master fly rod builder -graphite but even more known for his bamboo craftsmanship and one of the founders of Sweetgrass Rods in Twin Bridges, Montana. Jerry is also a master story teller and this book is no exception to his fine writing ability. Jerry has the uncanny ability to put the reader in wonderful places and make them think deeply about fly fishing, places, people and life itself. Holy Water is Jerry’s 5th book and should be in every serious fly angler’s library.
