Overview

Don't translate your success or lack of success fishing these days to "increased pressure" caused by a growing number of anglers on the water. Learn how to respond to today's tougher conditions with better techniques and more awareness to what is happening around you. Author and fly fishing guide, John Huber addresses this dilemma faced by the new-millennium angler through an engaging story about two friends, Jerry and Bobby, in pursuit of that ever-elusive fish, Terrence. Throughout Bobby's quest to catch Terrence, Jerry, the veteran angler of the two, shares hints and suggestions about technique, from how to identify what trout feed on to which knot will increase Bobby's chances and yours of hooking "the big one" that always gets away. You too will benefit from Jerry's pearls of wisdom and enjoy an entertaining tale about friendship, a passion of trout and keeping a sense of humor.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Writing good dialogue is terribly difficult. Writing good dialectic is so difficult that Socrates left it to Plato.
Dialectic is what John Huber delivers in Lessons of Fairsized Creek. The premise: On his day off, a smart and self-effacing guide named Jerry meets Bobby, a better-than-average fisher who's earnestly and unsuccessfully working an educated trout the author calls Terrance. Bobby appreciates both Jerry's tutorial and the roast beef sandwich he shares; 11 times after that the men meet by design. Each reunion becomes a seminar of sorts, most of which incorporates the perspectives of all three players.
Like all good teachers, Jerry has a keen sense of when to speak up, when to sit back and watch and just how to hold the mirror when a student's frustration finally forces him to reflect. Just as importantly, Jerry's intent is not to establish himself as Bobby's worshipped sage, but to lead him into skills and ways of thinking that will profit him always.
