of fly fishing. If you live in the mountains and fish small streams
such as I do, you will find yourself dropping your hoe,shovel,ax and wondering off
to your local trout stream for a few hours of pure and simple joy. There will be no regret or guilt for your decision and if there is, you will quietly blame the impulse on the fact that you read Johns book. After all, for the fly fisherman there are No Shortage Of Good Days.
Very enjoyable read.
But even then, his writing is so enjoyable, would you mind reading any of these essays twice? Three times?
Trademark Gierach, full of the wit and dry humor that I love him for and the humble observations that make me slow down and look around when I'm out fishing, and make me slow down and think while I'm reading. Even my wife chuckles at the passages I read aloud at the table. I reached the end too soon.
I have such wonderful memories of fishing with my father and when life took me in different directions, I longed for those golden days.
Three years ago, I met a fisherman who enjoys fishing the small streams and ponds like I do and has traveled with me to New York and Pennsylvania for trout , to Alaska to fish for salmon and to the Everglades to fish for Largemouth Bass.
We were supposed to take a fly-fishing vacation to Yellowstone for the month of August and were all set to go when he had to go to the hospital. He has been there for 25 days and feels like he is under "house arrest".
Our only escape is a Gierach book, read off the new Amazon Kindle I just bought for him.
Gierach captures all that we feel about being out there and we are fishing with him from the hospital bed.
Thanks, John for setting us free!
