Gierach here follows up his highly successful Trout Bum with another collection in the same vein. He continues to educate and entertain in his rough-talking, fishing-crony style. But be not deceived. This philosophy major who once worked as a plumber's helper is apt to allude to Salvador Dali, Shakespeare, and Heraclitus of Ephesus in a discussion of perch jerkers, maggots, and bass. Well read in the literature and well practiced in the art of fly fishing for trout, Gierach is one of the wittiest and most articulate contemporary fishing writers. A definite acquisition for libraries catering to sports enthusiasts. David J. Panciera, Westerly P.L., R.I.
