“After 5 many years, twenty books, and numerous columns, [John Gierach] continues to be a master,” (Forbes) and his most recent publication merely confirms this evaluation, together with his fresh induction into the Flyfishing corridor of reputation. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach brings his ever-sharp humorousness and prepared eye for commentary to the fishing lifestyles and, for that topic, existence in general.

Known for his witty, trenchant observations approximately fly-fishing, Gierach’s “deceptively laconic prose mask an finished storyteller…his alert and just a little off-kilter observations position him within the common local of Mark Twain and James Thurber” (Publishers Weekly). A Fly Rod of Your Own transports readers to streams and rivers from Maine to Montana, and as constantly, Gierach’s fishing journeys develop into the muse for his pointed observations on every little thing from the psychology of fishing (“Fishing continues to be an oddly passive-aggressive enterprise that will depend on the prey being the aggressor”); why even the main veteran fisherman will muff his solid at any time when he’s being filmed or photographed; the inevitable accumulation of extra apparatus than you will ever desire (“Nature abhors an empty pocket. So does the take on industry”); or the characteristics shared by way of the easiest publications (“the generosity of a instructor, the craftiness of a psychiatrist, and the passion of a cheerleader with a type of Vulcan detachment”).

As Gierach loves to say, “fly-fishing is a continuing method that you simply discover ways to love for its personal sake. those that fish already get it, and people who don’t couldn’t care much less, so don’t waste your breath on anyone who doesn’t fish.” A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to those that fish that “brings a skeptical, wry voice to the peril and promise of twenty-first-century fishing” (Booklist).
