After years as a successful and popular Montana fishing and hunting guide, Trapper Knight is dropped to his knees by the brutal death of his only son. The once affable man now polishes his sorrow with alcohol and solitude.

Battling his past, he rows his way through fly fishing guide trips on some of Montana’s Blue Ribbon fisheries supported by friends and relatives. The beauty of the mountain West along with sparkling tail dancing trout on the end of his fly line slowly awakens him from his stupor. His best friend risks his reputation to help Trapper by finding him a temporary and unlikely job. All is not what it seems and Trapper finds himself crawling out of his emotional hell only to find himself in the middle of a life and death struggle of a different kind.

With help from a group of badly injured Iraqi war veterans, he battles his way through the Montana back country in a struggle for his life and the lives of those he cares most about.
