More Information
John Gierach is the fisherman's fisherman, a literary angler who hooks more readers with each of his eagerly anticipated books. In Still Life with Brook Trout, he gives us more of the witty, poignant, and beguiling ruminations that only he seems capable of making, reminding us once again that there?s so much more to fishing than rods and reels.

"Imagine the first human to conceive of this," Gierach writes. "He?d have dipped a hook in the water and plucked out a fish. People wouldn?t have believed him, so he?d have shown them and it would have seemed like magic. Some days it still does." No one describes the magic of fishing better than Geirach, and no one writes more magically about the subject. From the fisherman?s koan ("If the salmon cannot be caught, how can you catch him?") to the lessons of failure ("You are still somehow fulfilling your destiny as a fisherman, and that's bound to be for the best."), this is a wonderfully wise meditation that no fisherman will be able to pass up.

Nobody understands better than John Gierach the fine line between healthy passion and clinical pathology that we anglers so comically tread. ?Carl Hiaasen
