I hope this is true for a lot of anglers, but I grew up reading John Gierach's fluid writing and found his books by accident at the local library. That was over 20 years ago, now, every winter, I pick one from my personal library and re-read it again as it seems the stories never age, the thrill of the adventure never fades. America s best fishing writer (Houston Chronicle) returns with more surprising, entertaining insights on fishing and on life, now in paperback.In No Shortage of Good Days John Gierach takes readers from the Smokies in Tennessee to his home waters in Colorado, from the Canadian Maritimes to Mexico saltwater or fresh, it s all fishing and all irresistible. As always he writes perceptively about a wide range of subjects: the charm of familiar waters, the etiquette of working with new fishing guides, night fishing when the trout and the mosquitoes are both biting, and fishing snobbery, a pitfall he seems to have largely avoided: A friend and I recently realized that making fly-fishing a way of life instead of a hobby has made us a couple of pretty one-dimensional characters. On the other hand, we agreed we re two of the happiest people we know, albeit in a simple-minded sort of way. Gierach again demonstrates the wit, eloquence, and insight that have become his trademarks. No Shortage of Good Days is the next best thing to a day of fishing.
