Somewhere Else is a thousand miles away and right next-door. It's where fly-fishing takes you: a place and state of mind. In fourteen beautifully crafted stories Charles Rangeley-Wilson takes us around the world, from Arctic Quebec to upland Croatia, from the Scottish islands to the Northern Territories, always journeying into the heart of the landscape to meet ordinary, extraordinary people. Somewhere Else is a book about escaping from what you think you know, to find out how things really are.

"It's the search for poetry and meaning that moves me the most... [This is]a nice, idiosyncratic work that gave me much enjoyment" -- Thomas McGuane "At last, some fishing stories with wit, dialogue and characterisation in them. Deft, laconic, and thrilling in places, Charles' wide-ranging debut is a welcome antidote to the Podsnappery of much of the sport's literature: I reckon you could enjoy this book even if you had never picked up a rod" -- David Profumo, author of Sea Music "An intense, round-the-world fly-fishing adventure which sucks you in from first page to last... A fine collection of short stories" * Scotland on Sunday *
