This “elegiac tribute to the elusive artwork and ineffable excitement of fly-fishing” (Kirkus Reviews) exhibits us why life’s most precious lessons—and a few of its top experiences—are stumbled on whereas fly-fishing.

For John Gierach, “the grasp of fly-fishing” (Sacramento Bee), fishing is often the answer—even while it’s now not transparent what the query is. In All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach travels round North the USA looking for vital fishing reports, no matter if it’s at a hectic move or a secluded lake hidden amid snow-capped mountains. He talks concerning the paintings of fly-tying and the hunt for the best steelhead fly (“The Nuclear Option”), approximately fishing within the Presidential swimming pools formerly fished through the elder George Bush (“I questioned in short if I’d performed whatever 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 somebody is needed to assert, ‘You understand, there are those that wouldn’t imagine this can be fun’”). And even though 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 constantly, 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 facet were consistent…His grizzled, laconic personality is attractive and the voice of the typical angler” (The Wall road Journal).
