I’m a fan of John Gierach and his writing, and perhaps you are too. It’s probably worth your time, if you enjoy chasing trout (or bass or bluegills or any other fishy fish) to read some Gierach. You’ll enjoy it.
Below is a link to a recent interview of Gierach done by Trout Underground.
I found the discussion of fly fishing as an extreme sport interesting. It really isn’t an extreme sport, but I suppose that’s what sells these days, isn’t it? But then you’ve got this idea of trout fishing being so insanely intense with action that maybe you go home a little disappointed once in a while. And that’s not that good, is it?
Give the interview a read. Let me know what you think, if you want to.
