AT THE GRAVE OF THE UNKNOWN FISHERMAN
John Gierach
SIMON & SCHUSTER, Apr 2003
ISBN: 0-7432-2992-4

America's favorite fly-fishing scribe delights anew with sage & witty observations on how to fit fishing into your life - or vice-versa. Gierach takes readers with him through the year, from his early spring forays out of his house after resisting the temptation to go ice-fishing, to the end of the season in his beloved Rocky Mountains, when the snows begin to pile up & getting to the river is all but impossible. Shrewd & observant, brilliantly capturing human nature as it expresses itself on trout waters. 5.5x8.5 inches, 192 pgs.

At the Grave of the Unknown Fisherman marks a significant event for John Gierach and his legion of fans. It is his first book of linked essays on a single theme, his first unified book on his favorite topic; the vagaries of the fishing life. Gierach takes readers with him through the year, from his early spring forays out of his house after resisting the temptation to go ice-fishing, to the end of the season in his beloved Rocky Mountains, when the snows begin to pile up and getting to the river is all but impossible. In between he travels to Wyoming and Nebraska, among other places, to fish and muse on the fishing life. He writes about his fishing buddies and how they invariably deem every trip a success even when, he says, "the best that could be said is that none of us drowned." He contrasts trout and carp (or "lowly carp"), observing that if you wanted to sip white wine and discuss poetry, your companion would be a trout, but if wanted to dig a ditch, you'd want a carp.
