Fish Mysteries

Fans of fly fishing, mysteries, and stories set up in the Upper Midwest take note: John Galligan's series of books (The Nail Knot, The Blood Knot, The Clinch Knot, and most recently the soon to be released The Wind Knot) centers around Ned Ogilvie, or "Dog", an unwilling detective who keeps himself going with a potent cocktail of fly-fishing, mystery-solving, and vodka-Tang. Galligan will be signing books at the 10th anniversary of Chicago Fly Fishing Outfitters (1279 N Clybourn) on Saturday, March 12, from 12pm-4pm.
