When her mother deserts her to be with a new man, Amanda is hurt and betrayed. She loses faith in the world. To soothe her pain, she retreats into fly fishing, until she learns that her loving grandmother has terminal cancer.

Amanda struggles to find answers. Then one day she discovers that her grandmother, against the doctor’s orders, has gone fishing somewhere on the Junction River. Frightened, Amanda, along with Shana, her adopted dog, and Vernon, a grieving alcoholic, searches the river—but marches into an unexpected, terrifying event that, in a surprising way, helps her learn to forgive and to see the good in the world.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

“Kadish has carved a wonderful story full of antics that any true angler would love. His characters are fun and bold, mercurial and fast somewhat like the fish themselves. … If you love fishing and especially fly fishing, you will enjoy this wholesome family story. It takes you back to a time before innocence is changed and the times where a child is still unafraid to speak their mind.” –Leslie Wright,


The Bad, the Good and Two Fly-fishing Women is a sweet lunch-time read, filled with the scents and sounds of the riverbank, the honesty of youth, the wisdom of ages, and the promise of redemption. To share with a child, to ease the pain of loss or the confusion of betrayal, or just to enjoy the peace engendered in a change of time and pace, it’s a long short story well worth reading and remembering.


I really enjoyed this quaint tale of a girl looking for love and enjoyment of fly fishing. Her mother abandons her and her father so her grandmother comes to live with them and provide some love and teachings about fly fishing.

I liked the messages in the story and the short but gripping writing style of this book.

I would definitely recommend people read this short story.

About The Author

I’m a native New Yorker. After a good deal of disappointment, I gave up writing. Then my mother passed away, and I found that fishing helped ease my grief. Almost accidently, I wrote and sold a fishing article. Afterwards, my articles and memoirs appeared in many publications, including The Flyfisher, Flyfishing & Tying Journal and Yale Anglers’ Journal.

To me, much of my writing is about coming to terms with loss, and with a world I can’t always understand. In a sense, my writing is autobiographical, as it reflects my own gratifying, but at times, difficult journey of emotional and spiritual recovery.

On the long road of my journey, I slowly learned that, even when I don’t have answers, I must strive to find forgiveness and self-worth and to connect to the good and the beautiful in the world.

(This is how I define spirituality.)

I therefore love books where the main characters struggle against inner and outer conflicts and then try to do good.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Randy Kadish and ENT appreciate it.
