Product Description

In No Shortage of Good Days John Gierach takes readers from the Smokies in Tennessee to his home waters in Colorado, from the Canadian Maritimes to Mexicoa??saltwater or fresh, ita??s all fishing and all irresistible. As always he writes perceptively about a wide range of subjects: the charm of familiar waters, the etiquette of working with new fishing guides, night fishing when the trout and the mosquitoes are both biting, and fishing snobbery, a pitfall he seems to have largely avoided: a??A friend and I recently realized that making fly-fishing a way of life instead of a hobby has made us a couple of pretty one-dimensional characters. On the other hand, we agreed wea??re two of the happiest people we know, albeit in a simple-minded sort of way.a?? Gierach again demonstrates the wit, eloquence, and insight that have become his trademarks. No Shortage of Good Days is the next best thing to a day of fishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Shortage Of Good Days 24 May 2011
By Bamboo Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
John does it again, simply writes a book that speaks to the heart
of fly fishing. If you live in the mountains and fish small streams
such as I do, you will find yourself dropping your hoe,shovel,ax and wondering off
to your local trout stream for a few hours of pure and simple joy. There will be no regret or guilt for your decision and if there is, you will quietly blame the impulse on the fact that you read Johns book. After all, for the fly fisherman there are No Shortage Of Good Days.

5.0 out of 5 stars By reading any of John Gierach's books, it seems that you have a great fishing buddy for all of your trips... 28 Mar 2013
By T. Imai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have been told that John Gierach is the only fishing writer who makes his entire income solely from writing. If you have not picked up any of his books, I would highly recommend that you start with his earlier work, "Trout Bum" and you can see the adventures of a a younger man who decides life is more important doing the things you love rather than having to do a 8-5 pm schedule. I have purchased and read everyone of his books and often visit them to get a different perspective on my next visit. I rate the quality of a writer on not how quickly you want to get through the book but rather knowing the book will soon end and the need to savor every phrase and page until the inevitable end of the book. If you enjoy fly fishing and the outdoors, John Gierach is as good as it gets...

5.0 out of 5 stars More good stuff from Gierach . . . 13 July 2011
By Dale L. Crawford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I will begin with stating; "I am a Gierach fan." That said - I was not at all disappointed in his latest book. I enjoyed it! He covered a variety of topics - all tied into fishing ;-) and did so well.

Very enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars As wonderful as ever 4 Jun 2011
By Trout Dad - Published on Amazon.com
The only downside to this book is that if you are a regular reader of his column, you have probably read some of these before.

But even then, his writing is so enjoyable, would you mind reading any of these essays twice? Three times?

Trademark Gierach, full of the wit and dry humor that I love him for and the humble observations that make me slow down and look around when I'm out fishing, and make me slow down and think while I'm reading. Even my wife chuckles at the passages I read aloud at the table. I reached the end too soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars No shortage of good days 18 Oct 2012
By eb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Not his best work for sure. But still not a bad read. I suspect the fishing was better the year he wrote it and spent less time on this book than other ones he has done. All in all, worth the money though.
