“It was widely known that this valley and the nearby Parvati Valley – a particularly known tourist weed mecca – as well as a few other remote valleys in the state, were the biggest producers of the best hashish in India, though many would dispute that and say in the world! Unlike the many that come for the hashish, the solitude and maybe 1 per cent for the fruit, I was solely here for the trout fishing, which I was to find was a much rarer occurrence than I’d expected.”
All of Stu Tripney’s adventures start with a wild idea and the courage to explore places barely known. Fly fishing is always at the heart of the plan but only ever a part of the story.
Out Come The Dogs happens in India, where Stu ventures high up into the Himalayan mountain range visiting remote villages and valleys, encountering and embracing everything in his path. Savage dogs, monks, hashish, monkeys, whisky, poverty, nomads, sickness, oxygen and fly fishing.
PRAISE - OUT COME THE DOGS
He's done it again through his quest to go fishing in the most out-of-the-way places this world has to offer; in this book, we find him exploring India. Stu's new non-fiction novel is captivating and interesting, as well as being informative. It’s Impossible not to gasp on one page and laugh out loud on the next.
Although he purports to go fishing, he manages to share with us his gift of keenly observing his surroundings and taking his readers to 'exotic' places where he meets and engages with very interesting local people and cultures. It’s a captivating book that’s hard to put down and had me wishing to book a ticket and go on an adventure. Stu has a unique voice, and it comes across in his writing. My husband, the only one in the family who owns a fishing rod, has just picked it up, and he’s enjoying himself in the corner.

You have a voice that can be heard in your work. It may sound obvious, but I don’t think it is! You made a creative idea into a reality which is inspiring to all us artists who keep hacking away. And there was the 20m pylon, and giant wrench artwork explained on practically the first page. A brutalist post-modern statement. It’s a brilliant skyline you’ve made there.

Hi Stu - Just received your latest book to add to the collection. They all look fantastic together beside one another. It's a real treat some nights scrolling thru the pages. Of course, it’s another great read factual, funny and humanised (if that's even a word)? Learned a bit about how to improve my fishing and how others fish for trout. Makes me wonder if I need all this gear. I was certainly hanging onto my seat, clenching my teeth and flinching, reading the bus ride bits - nightmare material!! You’re a superb storyteller Stu and have a natural ability to keep a reader's attention. Hours of enjoyable, entertaining reading. What's next, I do wonder?
