Every summer for two decades, Ted Leeson and a maverick group of close companions have returned to an old ranch house on the benchland overlooking the Madison River. Trout and fly fishing may be at the heart of their ritual return, but their experience goes far beyond the fishing. Leeson contemplates both the human and natural landscape brilliantly: the fly-anglers’ passionate, ironic, and sometimes hilarious allegiances to what they do; the intriguing Madison Valley and its creatures and flowers; the trout town of Ennis; maps and their revelations; the “green-card” experience of living in a place in which you are not native; the nature of leisure.   Full of wit, surprise, shrewd observation, and wisdom, this book tells a story about creating a place of temporary liberty, and inhabiting a world fashioned of your best imaginings, where you might, for a time, live the potencies of a place that you have shaped and has shaped you. No lover of the very best writing about fly fishing and the natural world can afford to miss this stunning book.

This book is a bit different than maybe your typical flyfishing book. It is centered around a group of old friends . . . many , but not all are flyfisher folks. They get together each summer for a couple of months to fish the Madison and other streams in Montana. The author and his wife are two of the mainstays of the group. Some are present for most of the time - others come and go. Each seems to have their own talents and personalities.

I don't know that I learned an awful lot about fishing Montana with this book - but, it was certainly an enjoyable read . . . and, that, I think, was the point.
Rocksmith
Very enjoyable book. A great writer
CONVERSE
I enjoyed it but that may because I've visited most of the places mentioned.

Ted Leeson writes with descriptive phrases that at times you feel like you are in Montana. Other times you are longing to be there as a part of the group. I highly recommend this book. It is one of his best. Also a must read is Jerusalem Creek - Fly Fishing through Driftless Country.
Dranar
With The Habits of Rivers and Jerusalem Creek to his credit, Ted Leeson now assumes the top of the heap of sporting writing with his latest work. I would rank his work up there with McGuane, Traver, Lyons, Barich and Haig-Brown in terms of depth and sophistication of writing. 5 stars.

Verbose complex and not enjoyable ready . Ok for some academic project
Danrad
Great book - not even close to being just about fishing. NOT a how to. Great thoughts and writing about life and fishing and Montana. I could only read it in small pieces - due to it's thought provoking nature. Like a fine single malt it is meant to be savored and could be an acquired taste.
The scenes portrayed were very good, but the text was so overwritten that it seemed a better sleep therapy tool than an interesting read.
