John Gierach, “the voice of the typical angler” (The Wall road Journal) and member of the Fly Fishing corridor of reputation, brings his sharp humorousness and prepared eye for statement to the fishing lifestyles and, for that topic, existence in general.

John Gierach is understood for his witty, trenchant observations approximately fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own, Gierach once more takes us into his international and scrutinizes the paintings of fly-fishing. He travels to distant fishing destinations the place the airport isn't really a lot larger than a storage and a flight should be held up simply because a passenger is operating overdue. He sings the praises of the expert pilots who fly to distant fishing resorts in tough destinations and undesirable climate. He explains why even the main veteran fisherman turns out to muff his forged at any time when he’s being filmed or photographed. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen consistently appear to come upon on the most sensible fishing spots and why fishermen speak about four-wheel force automobiles nearly as passionately and often as they talk about fly rods and flies. And whereas he’s on that topic, he explains why even the main conscientious fisherman regularly turns out to amass extra rods and flies than he might ever need.

As Gierach says, “fly-fishing is a continuing method that you simply learn how to love for its personal sake. those that fish already get it, and those that don’t couldn’t care much less, so don’t waste your breath on anyone who doesn’t fish.” From Alaska to the Rockies and around the continent to Maine and the Canadian Maritimes, A Fly Rod of your individual is an ode to people who fish—and they're going to get it.
