A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach, John
15 Gierach, JohnA Fly Rod of Your Own; 1451618344 / 9781451618341, New Book
2017 Simon & Schuster; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
As New 8vo Hardcover, in As New DJ
***(Synopsis) John Gierach is known for his witty, trenchant observations about fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach once again takes us into his world and scrutinizes the art of fly-fishing. He travels to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much bigger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger is running late. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He explains why even the most veteran fisherman seems to muff his cast whenever he’s being filmed or photographed. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing spots and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And while he’s on that subject, he explains why even the most conscientious fisherman always seems to accumulate more rods and flies than he could ever need. As Gierach says, “fly-fishing is a continuous process that you learn to love for its own sake. Those who fish already get it, and those who don’t couldn’t care less, so don’t waste your breath on someone who doesn’t fish.” From Alaska to the Rockies and across the continent to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to those who fish—and they will get it., AB01482.

(Description) This copy got a little rain-water on pages 31 through about 80. The pages are not stuck together but are slightly warped due to getting damp and not properly drying.

All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach, John
17 Gierach, JohnAll Fishermen Are Liars; 145161831X / 9781451618310, New Book
2014 Simon & Schuster; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
As New 8vo Hardcover, in As New DJ
(Description) Brand new Gierach book. ***(Synopsis) In All Fishermen Are Liars, the ever-popular Gierach shares insights, musings, and countless stories from the profound to the funny to the downright absurd that he’s collected over a lifetime of fishing. Traveling around North America, Gierach seeks out great fishing experiences with one goal in mind: to have a good time and maybe catch some fish. He talks about fashion in flies and fly-tying, about the mysteries of why certain flies work, and about the etiquette of fishing a popular spot. He reflects on how it feels to approach a new stream, acting nonchalant while experiencing intense excitement and anticipation. He also muses about fishing rods: “Although I own enough rods to build a picket fence around my property, I can sometimes be convinced that I need just one more.” And though Gierach loses some fish along the way, he never loses his passion and sense of humor. Wry, contemplative, and as lively as ever, Gierach gives us a book as edifying as it is entertaining. All Fishermen Are Liars is a joy to read - and, as always, the next best thing to fishing itself., AB01234.

1996 Simon & Schuster; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
Fine 8vo Hardcover, Fine
(Synopsis) Good fishing and good writing use the same skills. Whether you're after a trout or a story, you won't get far with brute force. You're better off to watch, wait and remain calm, just putting yourself in the place where the thing lives and letting it all happen, rather than trying to make it happen... Basically the world is a big, dumb trout, and you're a fisherman with all the time in the world. Whether it's fishing for trout in Labrador, for salmon in Scotland, or at the Big Lip Invitational in Montana - fly fishing's only carp tournament - it's just Another Lousy Day In Paradise for acclaimed author and self-described trout bum John Gierach as he writes about the agonies and ecstasies of the fishing life., AB00177.

At The Grave Of The Unknown Fisherman, Gierach, John
20 Gierach, JohnAt The Grave Of The Unknown Fisherman; 0743229924 / 9780743229920, New Book
2003 Simon & Schuster; 1st Ed, 1st PrintingSigned by the Author
As New 8vo Hardcover, in As New DJ
(Synopsis) At the Grave of the Unknown Fisherman marks a significant event for John Gierach and his legion of fans. It is his first book of linked essays on a single theme, his first unified book on his favorite topic; the vagaries of the fishing life. Gierach takes readers with him through the year, from his early spring forays out of his house after resisting the temptation to go ice-fishing, to the end of the season in his beloved Rocky Mountains, when the snows begin to pile up and getting to the river is all but impossible. In between he travels to Wyoming and Nebraska, among other places, to fish and muse on the fishing life. He writes about his fishing buddies and how they invariably deem every trip a success even when, he says, the best that could be said is that none of us drowned. He contrasts trout and carp (or lowly carp), observing that if you wanted to sip white wine and discuss poetry, your companion would be a trout, but if wanted to dig a ditch, you'd want a carp., AB00405.
