Brilliant, witty, perceptive essays about fly-fishing, the natural world, and life in general by the acknowledged master of fishing writers.
Fly-fishing’s finest scribe, John Gierach, takes us from a nameless stream on a nameless ranch in Montana to a secret pool off a secret creek where he caught a catfish as a five-year-old, to a brook full of rattlesnakes and a private pond where the trout are all as long as your leg. As Gierach says, “The secret places are the soul of fishing.” Hearing about a new one never fails to entice us.
And so Where the Trout Are All as Long as Your Leg transports the reader to the best of these places, where the fish are always bigger and the hatches last forever. After all, it’s these magical places that Gierach so vividly evokes that remind us how precious—and precarious—are the unspoiled havens of the natural world.
This is another great book by JG. It makes me question my life choices but then I realize I could not live his life as well as he does. I am grateful for his philosophical writing style and tales of fishing locations I will never get too.
After reading one of his books, I reminisce of my own fly fishing adventures, although considerably fewer then his.
Even though most of his readers have families and demanding jobs, it's good to experience that wanderlust lifestyle through the eyes of a gifted writer.
Keep em' coming.
