Like many fly fishers out there, I am a huge John Gierach fan. It began when I picked up his book, “Sex, Death and Fly Fishing” in college. Reading it confirmed my suspicions that some people do indeed reject convention and spend the majority of their waking hours pursuing trout. Since then, I’ve read all Gierach’s books, some more than once, and look forward to his Sporting Life columns in Fly Rod and Reel magazine.
While perusing the Trout Underground site (a great blog) the other day, I came across a link to an interview with John Gierach. Gierach doesn’t seem to do many interviews, so when I stumble across one, I read it. It’s nice to learn a little more about the man who pens such great fishing tales.
