Discover the answer to life’s most pressing problems through the joy of fly-fishing from master philosopher John Gierach. Once again, Gierach tells the world why the pastime of fly-fishing makes so much sense—except when it doesn’t. In sparkling prose, with more than a touch of humor, he recalls the joys of landing that trout he’s been watching for the last hour—and then losing an even fatter one a little later.
"Shrewd, perceptive and wryly funny. . . . Mr. Gierach, the man who coined the term 'trout bum,' is arguably the best fishing writer working." -- Bill Heavey ― The Wall Street Journal
Joy and frustration mix in Gierach’s latest appreciation of the fly-fishing life as he takes us from his home waters on the Front Range of the Rockies in Colorado to fishing meccas all over North America. From fishing lodges in Alaska to memories of the local creek in the Midwest where he grew up, Gierach reminds us about the indispensability of the natural world around us.
Lifelong fisherman though he is, Gierach can write with self-deprecating humor about his own fishing misadventures, confessing that despite all his experience, he is still capable of blowing a strike by a fish “in the usual amateur way.” The “voice of the common angler” (The Wall Street Journal), he offers witty, trenchant observations not just about fly-fishing itself but also about how one’s love of fly-fishing shapes the world that we choose to make for ourselves.
