This “elegiac tribute to the elusive artwork and ineffable excitement of fly-fishing” (Kirkus Reviews) exhibits us why life’s Most worthy lessons—and a few of its top experiences—are chanced 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 United States searching out necessary fishing reports, even if it’s at a hectic move or a secluded lake hidden amid snow-capped mountains. He talks concerning the artwork of fly-tying and the search for the ideal steelhead fly (“The Nuclear Option”), approximately fishing within the Presidential swimming pools formerly fished by means of the elder George Bush (“I questioned in short if I’d performed whatever karmically disastrous and used to be now fated to spend the remainder of my lifestyles respiring the exhaust of this aged Republican”), and the significance of touring with like-minded partners while stuck in a soaking rain (“At this element a person is needed to assert, ‘You recognize, there are those who wouldn’t imagine this can be fun’”). And notwithstanding Gierach loses a few fish alongside the best way, he by no means loses his ardour and experience of humor.

Wry, contemplative, and lively—that is to assert, 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 side were consistent…His grizzled, laconic character is attractive and the voice of the typical angler” (The Wall highway Journal).
