Fool's Paradise

Brilliant, witty, perceptive essays about fly-fishing, the natural world, and life in general by the acknowledged master of fishing writers.If John Gierach is living in a foolÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s paradise, then itÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s a paradise that his regular readers will recognize and new fans will delight in discovering. Laced with the inimitable blend of wit and wisdom that have made him fly-fishingÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s foremost scribe, FoolÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s Paradise chronicles the fishing life in all its glory (catching your biggest fish ever) and squalor (being stranded in a tent during a soaking rainstorm). In GierachÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s world, both experiences are valuable, and perhaps inevitable.Fishermen everywhere will understand GierachÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s quest to discover and explore new waters (and then not to divulge the best locations to anyone), the unlikely appeal of winter fly-fishing, or his dismay at encroaching development (Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__You never get to point at a meadow full of browsing mule deer and say, Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__You know, all this was once condos.Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__). Braving trips on small prop planes and down Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__Oh-My-GodÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__ roads, Gierach and his fishing buddies pursue bull trout in British Collumbia, steelhead in the Rocky Mountains, and pike so fierce that a wise fisherman wears Kevlar gloves for the obligatory trophy photo.Equal parts fishing lore, philosophy, and great fish stories, FoolÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s Paradise may not be a perfect substitute for actually being out on the water, but itÌ´å«ÌÎÌÏ_Ì´å«ÌÎÌÏ__s surely the next best thing.
