A Fly Rod of Your Own
For more than thirty years John Gierach has brought his sharp sense of humor and keen eye for observation to the fishing life and, for that matter, life in general. His books have been praised by Carl Hiaasen and Tom McGuane, and in newspapers ranging from regioinal weeklies to the Wall Street Journal. Now, in A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach once again takes us into the beguiling world of fly fishing.

Gierach travels to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much bigger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger has called to say that he is running late. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He explains why even the most veteran fisherman seems to muff his cast whenever he's being filmed or photographed. He observes that the best fishing spots always seem to lie at the end of all-but-impassable roads, which might explain why fishermen discuss four-wheel-drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And he tries to understand how it is that even the most conscientious fisherman accumulates enough rods and flies to last several lifetimes.

As Gierach says, "Fly fishing is a continuous process that you learn to love for its own sake. Those who fish already get it, and those who don't couldn't care less, so don't waste your breath on someone who doesn't fish." From Alasaka to the Rockies to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to those who fish- and they will get it.
