Quinn Grover has been fly fishing since he was a boy and writing about the sport since he was in college. His work has appeared in The Drake, The Fly Fish Journal, American Angler, and other publications both literary and fishy. His first book, Wilderness of Hope: Fly Fishing and Public Lands in the American West, was published in September of 2019 by the University of Nebraska Press. He has a PhD in English from Idaho State University and he is an English Professor at BYU-Idaho. He spends the moments between classes thinking about whether trout might be rising in the nearby Henry’s Fork. He has concluded that they probably are. This will be Quinn’s first tying demo at Jimmy’s where Wilderness of Hope: Fly Fishing and Public Lands in the American West, is available for purchase.
