A down-on-his-luck Rocky Mountain fly-fishing guide and his client for the day, a Fortune 500 executive, clash over everything in this smart, engaging novel. Sean Boldt, hard-charging executive and fly-fishing aficionado, is in town for merger negotiations when he gets fed up and decides to take the day off to go fishing in the mountains. He'll need a guide. Immediately. The best. He's offering triple scale. But things better be done right. That would be Rick Tamerlin's job. Rick can use the money, so on short notice, he assembles the gear, packs his old pick-up, and takes Boldt up to a surefire backcountry lake. What could go wrong?
