For John Gierach, “the grasp of fly-fishing” (Sacramento Bee), fishing is usually the answer—even whilst it’s no longer transparent what the query is. In All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach travels round North the United States searching out necessary fishing reports, even if it’s at a hectic circulation or a secluded lake hidden amid snow-capped mountains. He talks in regards to the artwork of fly-tying and the hunt for the right steelhead fly (“The Nuclear Option”), approximately fishing within the Presidential swimming pools formerly fished via the elder George Bush (“I puzzled in short if I’d performed anything karmically disastrous and was once now fated to spend the remainder of my existence respiring the exhaust of this aged Republican”), and the significance of touring with like-minded partners whilst stuck in a soaking rain (“At this element a person is needed to assert, ‘You recognize, there are those who wouldn’t imagine this is often fun’”). And notwithstanding Gierach loses a few fish alongside the way in which, he by no means loses his ardour and experience of humor.
Wry, contemplative, and lively—that is to claim, natural Gierach—All Fishermen Are Liars is a pleasure to read—and, as regularly, the subsequent neatest thing to fishing itself. “From the early days…to his current cult prestige, Gierach’s candor and canniness on the water’s part were consistent…His grizzled, laconic character is attractive and the voice of the typical angler” (The Wall highway Journal).
