Fool's Paradise

By John Gierach; Glen Wolff

Simon & Schuster. Good in Very Good dust jacket. 2008. First Edition. Hardcover. 0743291735 . Ex-library book, but still in quite good condition - protective sleeve and usual ex-lib type of markings. Pages all intact, one small section is wrinkled but no pages are stuck together, small amount of soiling and a couple earmarks seen, pages otherwise very good. Sleeve over jacket has some light scuffing. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 224 pages; "This addition to Gierach's long list of fishing books is perhaps not of trophy quality, but it's definitely a keeper. Gierach gets back to the basics of fishing in a collection of personal essays in which he contends that fishing is as much about being outdoors with a few friends who share the same passion as it is about catching fish. Of course, he still thrills at the fish's strike and he lands his fair share of them, but he spends as much time describing other aspects of the sport: getting there, what to do in foul weather, camping etiquette and predicting hatches. He even spends some time ruminating on hunting and the business of rod making. With the simple grace and native wisdom he is known for, Gierach always gets back around to fishing and pays special tribute to the fish themselves, sharing his encyclopedic knowledge of North American fish, their feeding habits and their exquisite colorings. Occasionally, he comments on environmental issues such as the effects of logging and housing developments on local streams, but he seems resigned to such encroachments, claiming that he can live with change as long as the fish are biting; such, he confesses, is his fool's paradise."

Illustrated in b/w. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; Conceived for novices, the Guide may be simple, but it's not simplistic. Filled with photographs and drawings and written in clear, direct prose, it's basic enough to demystify the ABC's of a complex sport and sophisticated enough to remain useful as a ready reference and constant refresher no matter what your angling skills. "The book, " Rosenbauer admits up front, "is the bare bones of fly fishing; it does not set out to tell everything. " The opening chapter answers the most important question for beginners: What is fly-fishing? "Fly casting, " he explains, "makes it possible to deliver a relatively weightless lure or imitation of a living creature on target, using line weight to develop momentum. That's a fairly dry way of saying that, using a fly rod, you can catch fish with an artificial lure that can't be presented by any other method. " Rosenbauer goes on to cover rods and line sizes, reels, leaders, casting technique, flies, fly selection, fish behavior, tactics, and accessories. He even provides an essential reading list. ...
