"John Gierach, 'the Bohemian equivalent of a country gentleman', takes us from a nameless stream, on a nameless ranch in Montana to a secret pool off a secret creek where he secretly caught catfish as a five-year-old, from a brook full of rattlesnakes to a private pond - with trout as long as your leg". "When the world of fly fishing seems to be split between obsessive-compulsive tool-fetishists and post-yuppie technique snobs, and it seems there's no place left for a fisherman to go, follow John Gierach to the place where the trout are all as long as your leg. Thank God there's still somebody left who knows that fishing is more akin to play than to competition or work". (Steve Bodio). "If Mark Twain were alive and a modern-day fly fisherman, he still would be hard put to top John Gierach". (Sports Illustrated).
