Description


From the Pacific Northwest to the Upper Midwest to the Canadian Maritimes, America's best fishing writer (Houston Chronicle) shows us why life's most valuable lessons and some of its best experiences are found while fly-fishing.
I have to go fishing; it's my job. John Gierach can say that and mean it. But fishing is only part of his job. The other part is writing about his fishing adventures. And that's the part we readers get to enjoy.
In All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach travels across North America from the Pacific Northwest to the Canadian Maritimes to seek out quintessential fishing experiences. Whether he's fishing a busy stream or a secluded lake amid snow-capped mountains, Gierach insists that fishing is always the answer even when it's not clear what the question is. All Fishermen Are Liars covers fishing topics large and small: the art of fly-tying and the quest for the perfect steelhead fly; fishing in the Presidential Pools previously fished by the first President George Bush; and the importance of traveling with like-minded companions when caught in a soaking downpour. ( At this point someone is required to say, You know, there are people who wouldn t think this is fun. )
Gierach may occasionally lose a fish, but he never loses his passion for fishing or his sense of humor. All Fishermen Are Liars proves yet again that life's most valuable lessons and some of its best experiences can be found while fly-fishing.
