Manufacturer Description

John Gierach, "the voice of the typical angler" (The Wall Street Journal) and member of the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, brings his sharp funny bone and keen eye for observation to the fishing life and, for that matter, life in general.John Gierach is understood for his amusing, trenchant observations about fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach when again takes us into his world andinspects the art of fly-fishing. He takes a trip to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much larger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger is running late. He sings the praises of the experienced pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in challenging locations and bad weather. He discusses why even the most seasoned fisherman appears to muff his cast whenever he's being filmed or photographed. He explains the all-but-impassable roadways that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing areas and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles nearly as passionately and often as they discuss fishing pole and flies. And while he's on that subject, he discusses why even the most conscientious fisherman always appears to collect more rods and flies than he might ever need. As Gierach states,"fly-fishing is a constant process that you learn to enjoy for its own sake.

Those who fish currently get it, and those who do not couldn't care less, so do not waste your breath on someone who doesn't fish." From Alaska to the Rockies and across the continent to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, A Fly Rod of Your Own is an ode to those who fish-- and they will get it.
