For John Gierach, “the grasp of fly-fishing” (Sacramento Bee), fishing is usually the answer—even whilst it’s now not transparent what the query is. In All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach travels round North the US searching out indispensable fishing stories, even if it’s at a hectic movement or a secluded lake hidden amid snow-capped mountains. He talks concerning the paintings of fly-tying and the hunt for definitely the right steelhead fly (“The Nuclear Option”), approximately fishing within the Presidential swimming pools formerly fished through the elder George Bush (“I questioned in brief if I’d performed whatever karmically disastrous and was once now fated to spend the remainder of my lifestyles respiring the exhaust of this aged Republican”), and the significance of touring with like-minded partners whilst stuck in a soaking rain (“At this element somebody is needed to assert, ‘You understand, there are those who wouldn’t imagine this can be fun’”). And notwithstanding Gierach loses a few fish alongside the best way, he by no means loses his ardour and experience of humor.

Wry, contemplative, and lively—that is to assert, natural Gierach—All Fishermen Are Liars is a pleasure to read—and, as constantly, the following smartest thing to fishing itself. “From the early days…to his current cult prestige, Gierach’s candor and canniness on the water’s facet were consistent…His grizzled, laconic personality is attractive and the voice of the typical angler” (The Wall road Journal).
