Amazon Summary on the Book:
Brilliant, witty, perceptive essays about fishing, the natural world, and life in general by the acknowledged master of fishing writers.
With his inimitable combination of wit and wisdom, John Gierach once again celebrates the fishing life in this book notating its benefits as a sport, philosophical pursuit, even therapy: “The solution to any problem—work, love, money, whatever—is to go fishing, and the worse the problem, the longer the trip should be.” After all, fishing teaches important life lessons—about solitude, patience, perspective, humor, and the sublime coffee break.
Reflecting on a lifetime of lessons learned at the end of a rod, Gierach concludes, “The one inscription you don’t want carved on your tombstone is that the poor guy didn’t fish enough.’ Fortunately for Gierach fans, this is not likely to happen.
