(Synopsis) In his new book about the delightful torture known as fly fishing, John Gierach again demonstrates the wit, eloquence, and insight that have become his trademarks. Consider this observation about fishing: ?From my own experience I can say that a bad back makes you hike slower, stove-up knees keep you from wading confidently, tendinitis of the elbow buggers your casting, and a dose of giardia can send you dashing into the bushes fifteen times in an afternoon, but although none of this is fun, it's discernibly better than not fishing.÷ Or this explanation for every fisherman's fascin...

(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 ...
