In the News: A Love Letter to The Tirthan River in India

Occasionally a fishing story comes over the wires from an unexpected place. Such was the case about Diya Kohli’s “So Long and Thanks for All the Fish,” published in the New Indian Express. You’re always going to get my attention with a Douglas Adams reference, but it’s also a lovely tribute to a place most of us have never been: the Tirthan River in the Kullu District of Himachal Pradesh.

What’s neat about good fishing literature is that the location is interchangeable; Diya could have been writing about the St. Croix in Northern Wisconsin or the Mad River near Urbana, Ohio or the Henry’s Fork of the Snake River in Idaho. It’s just a lovely piece and well worth a read.
