In Standing in a River Waving a Stick, John Gierach visits his favorite trout-filled waters, from the Colorado foothills to British Columbia and points between, recounting both memorable fishing spots and memorable fish. With his trademark combination of wit and wisdom, he discusses such topics as the differences between fishing in ponds and fishing in streams; what makes a good fly pattern; the ethics of writing about undiscovered trout waters; and the fly-fisher's progression from fishing from dawn to dusk without a break to something slightly more civilized. Rich in fishing lore, humor, and the seasoned know-how that has won Gierach a devoted readership, this book is sure to delight readers everywhere. 235 pages.
