First edition, 1st printing paperback without names, tears or soil, one faint crease at foot of spine cover, still more than suitable for gift-giving. 84 pp text crisp and unmarked. Not exlib. From the irrepressible author of Sex, Death, and Fly-Fishing, Trout Bum, and Even Brook Trout Get the Blues, comes a jewel of a book about those secret places that are the soul of fishing. In his earthy, vivid prose, John Gierach, "the Bohemian equivalent of a country gentleman," takes us from a nameless stream on a nameless ranch in Montana to a secret pool off a secret creek where he secretly caught a catfish as a five-year-old, from a brook full of rattlesnakes to a private pond - with trout as big as your leg. This book transports the reader to the best of these places, where the fish are bigger and the hatches go on forever. The magical places Gierach evokes remind us how precious - and precarious - are the unspoiled havens of the natural world.
