Acclaimed sporting and adventure writer Charles Gaines has spent much of his life on the water, around the world, fishing rod in hand, angling for trout, redfish, salmon, bonefish, bass, marlin, tuna, and practically everything else that swims. Just about any place where there's water to fish and eccentrics to keep him company, Charles has been.The Next Valley Over, a collection of his best writing on fishing over the years, culled from the pages of Men's Journal, Forbes FYI, Sports Afield, and other journals, is about the heart of the sport. While his stories are lined with the accoutrement of angling--the art of technique, the equipment, the lodges, the fish themselves--they're really about why we love to fish and what it means to our culture. As Thoreau once said: "Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after." What "they are after" is what Charles is curious about, and he has devoted a better part of his life and sanity to coming up with answers.His pilgrimage is divided into three parts. "Striking the Tent" sets the tone--the spark is ignited on Lake Tadpole when Charles can start to see the design of his life as a fisherman, the stillness and perfect solitude of a day starting at 3:45 a.m. casting to cruising brown trout in Tasmania; a Montana guide who has given up all material possessions to spend his life fishing; a day in the life of the world's greatest fishing lodge. Part Two, "Gone Fishing," is the relentless pursuit of "the next valley over." Charles takes us around the world (seventeen countries) to fish for just about every species known to man. Here is the essence of fishing stories, with exotic locales, a wide cast of characters, and a lot of partying. In the process, Charles almost "wanders off the edge of his own map." The final part, "Rounding Third," finds Charles turning fifty and putting things into perspective: gaining an understanding for the fragility of the wild environments he loves; taking more care and time with his fishing; and completing the circle of his angler's progress back to the home water where he started and which he comes to know truly for the first time.

In the world according to Charles Gaines, anglers who travel in pursuit of their craft can be classified as either pastoralists or nomads. The author of "Stay Hungry" takes readers on a pilgrimage into the very heart of sport fishing and explores what people are "really" looking for when they fish.

The Next Valley Over. Collision at Homosassa. I believe that the majority of anglers who travel to fish are by nature either pastoralists or nomads. Charles Gaines’ choices in life-to become a writer; to test himself physically; to sacrifice for his craft; and ultimately to spend an extraordinary amount of time on the water-are on the fault line of talent and ambition that fractures American literature. Hemingway and Zane Grey are in this book, not just in anecdote but in spirit.

In 2001 he published The Next Valley Over: An Angler's Progress, a creative nonfiction work which detailed his fly fishing experiences all over the world. He also co-authored Leaper: The Wonderful World of Atlantic Salmon Fishing with Monte Burke. Invention of paintball. In 1980, Charles Gaines and his friend Hayes Noel, a stock trader from New York City, had an argument about whether the talent for survival was an ingrained instinct adaptable to any environment (Noel), or a pattern of learned behavior specific to a particular environment (Gaines).

Talk about The Next Valley Over: An Angler's Progress


Bloodray
The author writes about his globe trotting days fishing many of the exotic waters of the earth. His style and descriptions of his journeys are quite in-depth and gives one of feeling of what he experienced during his fast, deep journeys into fish trips.

After reading the first page I knew that this was the book I was looking for. Mr. Gaines has described the time my son and I spend fishing as if he was on shore watching. He puts into words those moments on the stream that often fade without becoming complete thoughts. My experiences and dreams are contained in this diary that Mr. Gaines has so kindly written for me and perhaps you. I have ordered a second copy for my son. It's a book that will be read repeatedly.

AWESOME stuff, support Charles and buy the darn thing!

At best, fly fishing is a delerious obsession, at worst, a celebration of consumerism and elitist values. It has inspired a first-rate literature. Unfortunately, Gaine's book isn't part of it. Condescending portraits of fishing guides? The world's best ($750/day) fly fishing lodge? Gaines tries to hold out his pedestrian observations on the up-scale fly-fisher's lifestyle as some sort of unique and noble sensibility. He fails. Humour and any real insight into fishing are notably absent. Give this one a miss.

Charles Gaines takes the reader on some unbelievable adventures in this book of fishing trips. The trips and places Gaines has been fortunate enough to fish are places that most of us can only dream about. I was a little surprised in his description of partying his way as a "younger" guy but we've all been there in one way or another. This read got me making lists of all the places I want to visi, fish, and explore. I'll be checking off my progress.

When you grow tired or bored with the same ole 'cookie cutter' fishing books, pick up this piece of writing. For those of you who have fished, are fishing, and will die fishing, here is something worth spending your down time with. Not a 'how to' but better defined as a 'because why,' without all the new age rhetoric. I recognized several of these characters from my own pilgrimage through the fishing world. Good job, Charles Gaines. I hope you're too busy fishing to read this review...

Although there are a few chapters where I felt otherwise, for the most part, I kept getting the same sense reading this book, as you would if talking to someone who likes to listen to themself. After a while, you're crying "enough already!" If you like to read Gierach or Middleton or someone of that style, then I'd go in another direction than this title. Mr. Gaines seems a little too caught up in himself in this book. When he gets away from the narcissism, the book is not too bad, but those points seem to few for me.
