Discover the answer to life&’s most pressing problems through the joy of fly-fishing from master philosopher John Gierach, &“the dean of fly-fishing&” (Kirkus Reviews), who is &“arguably the best fishing writer working&” (The Wall Street Journal).Once again, John Gierach tells… the world why the pastime of fly-fishing makes so much sense—except when it doesn&’t. In this &“shrewd, perceptive, and wryly funny&” (The Wall Street Journal) book, 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. 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 the 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 celebrates the indispensability of the natural world around us.
