This &8220;elegiac tribute to the elusive art and ineffable pleasure of fly-fishing&8221; (Kirkus Reviews) shows us why life&8217;s most valuable lessons&8212;and some of its best experiences&8212;are found while fly-fishing. For John Gierach, &8220;the master of fly-fishing&8221; (Sacramento Bee), fishing is always the answer&8212;even when it&8217;s not clear what the question is. In All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach travels around North America seeking out quintessential fishing experiences, whether it&8217;s at a busy stream or a secluded lake hidden amid snow-capped mountains. He talks about the art of fly-tying and the quest for the perfect steelhead fly (&8220;The Nuclear Option&8221;), about fishing in the Presidential Pools previously fished by the elder George Bush (&8220;I wondered briefly if I&8217;d done something karmically disastrous and was now fated to spend the rest of my life breathing the exhaust of this elderly Republican&8221;), and the importance of traveling with like-minded companions when caught in a soaking rain (&8220;At this point someone is required to say, &8216;You know, there are people who wouldn&8217;t think this is fun&8217;&8221;). And though Gierach loses some fish along the way, he never loses his passion and sense of humor. Wry, contemplative, and lively&8212;that is to say, pure Gierach&8212;All Fishermen Are Liars is a joy to read&8212;and, as always, the next best thing to fishing itself. &8220;From the early days&8230;to his present cult status, Gierach&8217;s candor and canniness at the water&8217;s edge have been consistent&8230;His grizzled, laconic persona is engaging and the voice of the common angler&8221; (The Wall Street Journal).
