Fishing and life intertwine in new book by a Pittsburgh fly fisherman

By John Hayes
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Like fishing, life is an unpredictable series of thrilling wins and devastating losses. Together those lines get tangled in a new book written for tweens but unpredictably accessible to adults.

Scheduled for release this month, “Salmon Survivor” (Relevant Publishers, $14.99) is the first novel by Christian Shane of Cranberry, a biology teacher at Ingomar Middle School in the North Allegheny School District.
