Description of the book "Where the Trout Are All As Long As Your Leg":Fly-fishing's finest scribe, John Gierach, takes us from a nameless stream on a nameless ranch in Montana to a secret pool off a secret creek where he caught a catfish as a five-year-old, to a brook full of rattlesnakes and a private pond where the trout are all as long as your leg. As Gierach says, "The secret places are the soul of fishing." Hearing about a new one never fails to entice us.
And so Where the Trout Are All as Long as Your Leg transports the reader to the best of these places, where PDF the fish are always bigger and the hatches last forever. After all, it's these magical places that Gierach so vividly evokes that remind us how precious -- and precarious -- are the unspoiled havens of the natural world.
Gierach has known since childhood that "the secret places are the soul of fishing." It was, in fact, a boyhood adventure to a forbidden pool deep in the woods that awakened his love for the contemplative joys of fishing and for the magical places so basic to the mythology fly-fishermen share. "If Mark Twain were alive and a modern-day fly PDF-fisherman, he still would be hard put to top John Gierach."--Sports Illustrated. Line drawings throughout.
