All Fishermen are Liars, by John Gierach:
Great Campfire Read
John Gierach is no newcomer to fly fishing literature. In fact, he's hailed by many as the best fly fishing story teller of modern times. His latest work, “All Fishermen are Liars” is more about life, as told though the lens of an angler. It's a must have for any Gierach fan or for anyone we fishes.
In “All Fishermen are Liars,” Gierach travels across North America from the Pacific Northwest to the Canadian Maritimes to seek out quintessential fishing experiences. Whether he's fishing a busy stream or a secluded lake amid snow-capped mountains, Gierach insists that fishing is always the answer...even when it's not clear what the question is. “All Fishermen are Liars” covers fishing topics large and small: the art of fly tying and the quest for the perfect steelhead fly; fishing in the Presidential Pools and the importance of traveling with like-minded companions when caught in a soaking downpour.
John Gierach is the author of numerous books on fly fishing, including “At the Grave of the Unknown Fisherman,” Standing in a River Waving a Stick,” Dances with Trout,” Another Lousy Day in Paradise,” “Fool's Paradise” and “No Shortage of Good Days.” Each hardcover copy is personally signed by the man himself, John Gierach. Pick up a copy for yourself and one for your best angling buddy. It's the perfect gift for any literate fly angler on your list.
