My SO asked for this for his birthday and I forgot the title. It's a book about a guy who takes a break from his (tech/math/physics??) career and does a lot of fly fishing. It has a MC Escher bird-to-fish print on the cover and may have been featured somewhere like BoingBoing. Any help?

A River Runs Through It ?
Which I doubt is what you're looking for as it's about 40 years old, but it's a great book about fly-fishing and life.

Hmm, could it be The Painter by Peter Heller? He fly fishes a lot, and he's sorta taking a break from his life. It's a great novel regardless.

The Simple Beauty of the Unexpected by Marcelo Gleiser seems like it covers all your bases. It's new so it makes sense that your SO may have recently read a review or heard an interview.

Also for a fisherman, The River Why by David James Duncan.
