9780671779207: Dances With Trout

Brilliant, witty, perceptive essays about fly-fishing, the natural world, and life in general by the acknowledged master of fishing writers.

With the wry humor and wit that have become his trademark, John Gierach writes about his travels in search of good fishing and even better fish stories. In this new collection of essays on fishing —and hunting—Gierach discusses fishing for trout in Alaska, for salmon in Scotland and for almost anything in Texas. He offers his perceptive observations on the subject of ice-fishing, getting lost, fishing at night, tournaments and the fine art of tying flies. Gierach also shares his hunting technique, which involves reading a good book and looking up occasionally to see if any deer have wandered by.

Always entertaining, often irreverent and illuminating, Gierach invites readers into his enviable way of life, and effortlessly sweeps them along. As he writes in Dances with Trout, “Fly-fishing is solitary, contemplative, misanthropic, scientific in some hands, poetic in others, and laced with conflicting aesthetic considerations. It’s not even clear if catching fish is actually the point.”

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 211 x 137 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. In Dances with Trout, John Gierach roams the globe in search of good fishing and even better fish stories. He writes about fishing for trout in Alaska, for salmon in Scotland, and for almost anything in Texas. He offers perceptive observations about such subjects as ice-fishing ( There s something about sitting on a frozen, windswept lake staring down that eight-inch-diameter hole that looks - at least from a distance - like the primitive equivalent of watching television ), getting lost, fishing at night, and the art of tying flies ( Evaluating a fly solely on whether it catches fish is like saying a painting of Elvis on velvet is as good as a Picasso because both will cover the same crack in the plaster ). On the subject of fishing tournaments, Gierach has this to say: A tournament that accurately represented all the subtleties of fly-fishing doesn t exist and probably never will. It would have to have not only casting and fish-catching competitions, but also categories for fashion . . . not to mention lunch and wine selection, the invention and naming of fly patterns, bird and edible plant identification, good-heartedness, humor, lying, trespassing, philosophical detachment, creative misdirection of fellow anglers and so on. Dances with Trout also lets readers in on Gierach s tested hunting techniques, such as his method of waiting quietly in the woods, reading a good book, and looking up occasionally to see if any deer happen to have wandered into view. Written with the wry humor and wit that are Gierach s trademarks, Dances with Trout is sure to delight fishermen and non-fishermen alike. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780671779207
