Golden Years, Golden Hours – Stories and Reflections on Fly-Fishing, Hunting and Aging

Golden Years, Golden Hours-Stories and Reflections on Fly-fishing, Hunting and Aging is Paul Vang’s second book. In this new book, the author takes the reader through the seasons of the year, some of the many places he has cast a fly or lure for trout, salmon, bass and muskies, and some of the people he has met along the way.

He also shares memories of many hunts with a beloved Labrador retriever and the inevitable sorry of having to say farewell.

The author also muses on the process of aging, relishing that he’s able to continue an active outdoor lifestyle, while also recognizing, without being maudlin about it, that he has a lot more seasons behind him than ahead of him, even if he doesn’t think he’s ready to be a Senior Citizen.
