Cast and Blast

Come and have a chat with Dennis Dauble and Brad Trumbo about their new books!

Wingshooting the Palouse by Brad Trumbo is a heartfelt collection of essays on upland bird hunting with Llewellin setters running the grasslands of Eastern Washington and beyond. From covey birds on the sage-steppe to forest grouse, Trumbo presents grand vistas, high-tailed points, and the explosive flush of some of America’s most sought-after upland game birds in ornate detail. Passionate upland pursuits place the reader in the scene to experience the colors of the landscape, the giddy anticipation of the flush, and the heart-stopping rush of wingbeats. Building the hunter/canine partnership, tasting wingshooting perfection, enjoying mystifying mistakes, and embracing cultural history make up a fraction of the ground covered among the pages of this collection that is sure to resonate with any upland hunter.

In his most personal book to date, Chasing Ghost Trout, Dennis Dauble shares the events and people that shaped his love for wild trout and the streams of Oregon’s Blue Mountains. Chasing Ghost Trout is rollicking ride through five decades of heartfelt memories that show how the spirit of family and a love of nature can carry us through life. Dauble tells stories about encounters with wood ticks, a first steelhead, cleavage from heaven, sibling rivalry, old trucks, giant bull trout, organized religion, and a legendary rock formation. Even through the pain and uncertainty of his battle with prostate cancer and the loss of dear family members, comfort is found in the constant companionship of his Grandpa Harry’s battered willow creel—aka fish box—and its elusive collection of “ghost trout.”
