I lived in San Francisco in my early 20s. That´s when a friend named John taught me how to fish for trout in California´s Sierra foothills. Of Italian extraction, John shared fishing tips freely, energetically and often. That´s how I got hooked.
My earliest recollection of fishing is on a sunny June day in Indiana at the age of four. I am standing knee-deep in the lake at Grandpa’s farm. Suddenly, I see a swarm of water snakes coming at me, fast.
Dave Miller has lived in Bolivia since 1981 working as an itinerant preacher, free-lance journalist and sometimes successful trout fisherman. He and his wife Barbara share a passion to make disciples of the nations of Latin America. The Millers are blessed with four adult children and the world’s most intelligent grandchildren.
He has authored three books set in the Andes, including The Lord of Bellavista, The Path and the Peacemakers and Song of the Andes. If you send him $10 and your shipping address, Dave will send you a copy. Twenty bucks will get you all three.
Should you ever find yourself in Cochabamba during fishing season, Dave promises to take you out for a day of stalking the wily Andes trout.
