Thomas McGuane Trout Bum captures the passion, confusion and left-handed poetry of modern fishing, having his heart to the rivers he fishes, John Gierach conveys the power of his experience without pretense. John Nichols author of The Milagro Beanfield War, The Magic Journey, and American Blood Trout Bum is one of those delightful funds, like Norman McLean's A River Runs Through It. John Gierach is simply one of the more wonderful outdoor writers to come down the pike in many a season.

John Gierach is one of the most successful fishing writers of all time, and with good reason. In his 17th book, Gierach reminds us in a delightful way that fishing never has been just about catching, though he can teach us a lot about that, to. .Despite taking trips as a famous angler to exotic fishing locales, Gierach has retained his down-to-earth fishing honesty and has never forgotten that some of the best stories are about wading a trout stream just down the road.

John Gierach is the author of numerous books on fly-fishing. His work has appeared in Field & Stream, Gray s Sporting Journal, and Fly Rod & Reel, where he is a regular columnist

John Gierach is the author of numerous books on fly-fishing. His work has appeared in Field & Stream, Gray s Sporting Journal, and Fly Rod & Reel, where he is a regular columnist.

John Gierach remains the most consistently eloquent fly fishing writer of modern times. John Gierach is one of the most successful fishing writers of all time, and with good reason.

This means that no one is in Gierach’s league when it comes to writing about trout fishing. A Fly Rod Of Your Own makes you feel you are having a beer with your best friend who is not only funny, companionable, but just great to hang out with.

John Gierach is an American author and freelance writer who formerly resided on the St. Vrain River in Lyons, Colorado and now lives in Larimer County, Colorado. His books are based on his various fly fishing adventures, some of which take place with his friend, . A few of his works include The View from Rat Lake, Even Brook Trout Get the Blues, and the cult classic, Trout Bum, which popularised the term "trout bum".

This book is a treasure trove of fishy witticisms, outright belly laughs, and enough technical lore and love of nature to keep the most avid (or even the least avid) outdoors person turning pages relentlessly. Gierach obviously loves deeply and cares for this world he has chosen to make his stand in. It's a beautiful book, humorous, sly, rich, and touching I promise!

John Gierach's All Fisherman Are Liars. All Fishermen Are Liars (John Gierach's Fly-fishing Library).

John Gierach's All Fisherman Are Liars. There is no true to this statement. I'm also a flyfisher and I testify that we are not liars. John Gierach's All Fisherman Are Liars. Gierach travels across North America from the Pacific Northwest to the Canadian Maritimes to seek out quintessential fishing experiences.

John Gierach, a serious fisherman with a wry sense of humor, show us just how much more with his fishing stories and a unique look at the fly-fishing lifestyle. Trout Bum is really about why people fish as much as it is about how they fish, and it is ultimately about enduring values and about living in a harmony with our environment. Few books have had the impact on an entire generation that Trout Bum has had on the fly-fishing world

John is a great guide to fish with. I highly recommend his services er that other boats cannot touch.

Come join me and we'll go fly fishing for trout on northern Michigan's pristine rivers and creeks  . John is a great guide to fish with.

Brilliant, witty, perceptive essays about fly-fishing, the natural world, and life in general by the acknowledged master of fishing writers.While most of us fly-fish to escape from daily life, for John Gierach and his friends fly-fishing IS a way of life. They are trout bums. But John Gierach is also an exceptional writer. The essays in Trout Bum are reflective, bitingly humorous and enormously wise in the ways of fishing and men. In vivid, unforgettable detail they recount the emotional, spiritual and tangible adventures and pleasures of stalking trout in and around the Rockies—day in, day out, from season to season, with friends and alone. John Gierach’s essays join the literary tradition of angling classics like The River Why, and A River Runs Through It.

I can;t say this is better than all other Gierach books, but it's certainly the most popular and every-bit as good as any others. JG has a way of relating to everyone in some way or another, and a way of taking you along on his voyages without over-inflating them or making you jealous. Instead, you're just along for the ride.

I am new to fly fishing and this book was recommended by an experienced angler; learned a little about rods and flies and the trout you can catch with them, and a lot about the attitude one should have while pursuing them. Very humorous but also edifying in this regard, along the lines of life (as illustrated in trout fishing) is as much or more a journey as it is a destination, or catching fish. Will be reading his other books as well.
Bladecliff
A hilarious, entertaining and even philosophical dissertation on trout fishing, fly fishing, and the men who live their lives around a (bamboo) fly rod.
Great literature for anyone to while away the time at work, or elsewhere, until you can hit the river.
Now I'll have to read the rest of his stuff.
Well, life is full of sacrifices...
Gavigamand
Great writer. Am slowly getting all his books. Sometimes its hard to suppress a laugh when you're in the doctors office reading John Gierach.
Barinirm
One (aging hippie's) philosophy on coming to terms with approaching middle age. Humorous, good how to stuff, humor irony, and poignancy!
Nagis
I'm a little bias here, because I'm a big fan of anything Gierach writes. This is a great book, and I've read it a few times. I bought the kindle version, so I'd have a road book to read while sitting in airports or when the weather keeps me inside.
Helldor
Gierach has more talent for weaving a good story while making philosophical points about living life than most of the NYT Best Seller authors. I cannot get enough of his books.
This is an inspirational read. If you flyfish, you gotta read this classic by the one and only John Geirach.
