About the Author

John Gierach is the great sage of American fly fishing, an idiosyncratic philosopher whose commentaries onangling are explorations of the meaning of life. He is also one of the most widely-read angling writers inthe country, mainly through his monthly columns in Fly Rod & Reel. But his great books—Trout Bum,Standing in a River Waving a Stick, and Sex, Death and Fly Fishing, among others—continue to attractnew and younger readers. For many fly fishers, he is the voice of their sport. He lives in Lyons, Colorado.
