Cast Out of Darkness

Timothy C Sayer

Avid  angler and U.S. Marine, Blake Jacobs is seriously wounded in combat   while fighting in Ramadi, Iraq. During that same battle, Blake’s   lifelong friend is killed. When Blake returns home, he is haunted by  the  decisions he made that fateful day. Blake blames himself for the  death  of his friend. His guilt leads to depression, alcoholism, and  eventually  attempted suicide. Blake tries to cope with his guilt and  survivor’s  remorse by fulfilling a promise he made to his fallen friend  to embark  on a fly fishing journey across the American Rocky  Mountains.

Will  Blake’s journey to honor his friend help  to quell the demons of  substance abuse and suicidal thoughts? Will the  grandeur of the vast  mountain range and the beauty of its resplendent  rivers grant him peace  from the torments of war…or will Blake only find  more pain as he mourns  the loss of his dear friend?

About CFF

Combat Fly Fishing is geared towards an adventure class fly fisher who cuts his teeth fishing Rocky Mountain waters. He is always learning and adapting to ever changing seasons, weather conditions, and water flows. Wind, rain, and snow encourage him because he knows lesser anglers will stay at home. With what little spare time he has, he studies multiple fly  fishing disciplines and strives to improve his craft. He can be a beginner or a seasoned angler, because the goals he pursues are unique to him. He sacrifices sleep in exchange for the early morning hatch and hikes back to his car with a headlamp so not to leave the water before  the sun goes down. He understands that fly fishing is a sport of knowledge, patience, persistence, and technical execution. He is an ethical angler who defends the natural resource that fuels his addiction by carefully releasing his catch back into the water with nothing more  than a photo to hang as a trophy.
