# A new combined paperback edition of two of John Gierach's best loved books - Another Lousy Day in Paradise and Dances with Trout. Another Lousy Day in Paradise "is John Gierach at his wry and witty best, as addicitive as the river itself." "Good fishing and good writing use the same skills. Whether you're after a trout or a story, you won't get far with brute force. You're better off to watch, wait and remain calm, just putting yourself in the place where the thing lives and letting it all happen, rather than trying to make it happen... Basically the world is a big, dumb trout, and you're a fisherman with all the time in the world." 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" - ice-fishing, salmon fishing in Scotland, trout in Alaska and much more. Gierach at his best - twice.
