A blip of prosperity at the turn of the 20th century brought American trout to Patagonia, then for a half-century they were forgotten to fight wars and build a nation. Rediscovered by fishermen a half-century later, the fish had grown to epic proportions. InChasing Rumor, Cameron Chambers chronicles his modern-day pilgrimage to the rivers of Patagonia in pursuit of these legendary 20-pound trout. What started as a trip focused on catching fish became a love affair with the Patagonian landscape, environment, and, mostly, the people. From a business mogul turned B&B owner to a kid determined to save a local trout population,Chasing Rumor is at times the story of a handful of fishermen, and at other times a tale of enormous trout.

Editorial Reviews

'Chasing Rumor is different. It's a fly-fishing book the same way Moby Dick is a whaling tale.' - Chicago Sun Times'[Cameron Chambers] fits in a line that includes Thomas McGuane, Robert K. Brown and Norman Maclean (A River Runs Through It.) . . . What sets Chambers apart as a contemplative fly-fishing writer is relative youth. It's one thing for aging men to contemplate navels and big questions of life. Quite another for a young man to do that.' - Chicago Sun TimesFLY FISHING OFF THE BEATEN PATHS OF PATAGONIA (AND THERE ARE A LOT OF THEM) IS NOT FOR SISSIES BUT IT CAN BE A HELLUVA ENTERTAINING ADVENTURE. I KNOW - I'VE BEEN THERE. CAMERON CHAMBERS CAPTURES IT ALL - THE WILD RIVERS AND LAKES, SMALL AND GIANT FISH, LOCAL CHARACTERS AND NORTH AMERICAN FISH BUMS. CRACK A BEER AND GO ALONG FOR THE RIDE IN THIS ENTERTAINING BOOK."TOM BROKAW"Cameron's journey enabled him to compress, in a relatively short time, an understanding of himself and why we love fly fishing; something most fly fishermen acquire only during their lifetime. The dream of many is to chase a very special fish. Cameron brought to life the mythical chase and the joys, tribulations and, finally, understanding of that pursuit." - Lefty Kreh "
