PROFOUND RIVER by John Gubbins

Did a nun really invent the first flies for fly-fishing? Yes. Dame Juliana Berners was a remarkable woman: devout catholic nun and the credited inventor of fly-fishing. From boar-hunting on horseback to facing off with greedy priests determined to further impoverish her convent, Dame Juliana's story will surprise and inspire you.

this book has one of the finest explanations of the importance of virtue I have ever read. I was so moved by it that I wrote it down and passed it along to all my friends! It is where Dame Juliana tells Edward, the Duke of York that she is worth more than one night. It is truly beautiful - and beautifully true!
