Book Review: Sex, Death, and Fly-Fishing

Sex, Death and Fly-Fishing
by John Gierach


I know, I know. Another Gierach book? I'm trying to stretch out to different authors but I can't help coming back to John's books and his familiar circle of friends. 

This collection of short stories takes us around John's home state of Colorado, Wyoming, British Colombia and even Utah's Green River. Though I have to admit my favorite chapters deal with the lesser-loved fishes like gar and carp. This is another great read, one that it's very easy to get through too quickly. 

"There was a time when I thought I could just be a fisherman and live a quiet little life. Now I see that, like it or not, I have to be a soldier in the trout wars." pg. 224
