Guiding Elliott of Robert Lee is an epistolary novel set amid the best trout fishing in the West. These are the letters of Donnie Phillips, a Montana fly fishing guide, a simple man who believes that women have no right to be on the trout stream and that oatmeal has no business being considered food, to a New York City fly fishing club.

With a comic mangling of the English language rivaling Mrs. Malaprop's, donnie attempts to impart to city folk the wisdom of a real fly fishing guide. But he gets carried away with hilarious accounts of small-town like, its wacky characters, including his new friend Elliott, fly fishing rivalries, and barroom brawls.

As it turns out, this season is a particularly bad one for Donnie. A barrage of personal trials worthy of job gradually transforms this stubborn man into one whose generous spirit makes him a hero in the eyes of the woman he loves. Full of raucous humor, great fishing lore, and surprising plot turns, Guiding Elliott of Robert Lee blooms into a rich and vibrant evocation of the new West.
