Product Description

Review

Flyfisher Magazine Gierach writes about the common experiences in a way that makes ours more meaningful.

From the Back Cover

"The secret places are the soul of fishing.... It may be a private spring creek with armed guards where there are huge browns and lots of them, or it may just be an unknown beaver pond where a handful of book trout have grown to a whopping eleven inches. In either case, it's a spot that, by the simple virtue of being left more or less alone, has reached is full potential."So begins this brilliant short book, in which half a dozen such places are featured. There is a pool made memorable because it is part of a risky childhood adventure; hidden local streams; sections of a wealthy ranch; secret stretches - full of rattlesnakes - and private ponds with trout as long as your leg. All are made magically vivid by Gierach's special prose - and all stand starkly against a more public natural world increasingly threatened with ecological disaster. (53/4 X 81/2, 100 pages, illustrations)

HASH(0xa3c3bd2c) out of 5 stars The secret places to fish. Feb. 19 2007
By Erlend Nilssen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We who fish have all heard of these places. The Secrets, the holes where civilisation didn't spoil the fish, and the fish are wild. Or, if originally stocked, been living the free life long enough to be close to wild. Yet again Gierach proves that his writing, although deeply personal, never becomes private and that his choice of subject - matter touches everybody with just a passing knowledge of fishing. His books are about life first and the fish second or are these to inseperable to him?

HASH(0xa3c3bb34) out of 5 stars another great read May 21 2012
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As always, anything John writes is as refreshing, earthy and entertaining as a day spent fishing for real. The only disappointing thing about his books is arriving at the last page and realizing that the journey is over!

i recently received this book and it is an easy and enjoyable read. Gierach has a way with words and when put in the context of fly fishing makes for a fun read. Makes one think too!
HASH(0xa4cf4174) out of 5 stars COMMON EXPERIENCES ONE FINDS IN ONE'S OWN FISHING EXCURSIONS Nov. 30 2013
By kenny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As always, author John Gierach has put his experiences fishing with friends and by himself into words which convey many similar experiences which one has experienced in their own fishing expeditions. Though not as long as some of his previous books I have read, it was an enjoyable activity to pick up the book and read for a bit. Nothing spectacular about the trips, but provides enjoyable reading for one who is unable to get out to do one's own fishing.
