Publisher's Summary

In No Shortage of Good Days John Gierach takes listeners from the Smokies in Tennessee to his home waters in Colorado, from the Canadian Maritimes to Mexico - saltwater or fresh, it'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 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 we're two of the happiest people we know, albeit in a simple-minded sort of way."
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.

Critic Reviews

"While Gierach offers plenty of fishing how-to advice, the book is most memorable for the wit and insight he brings to more introspective matters, such as the whys of fishing, the places the sport takes you, and the people you meet." ( Booklist Starred Review)

A little on the hippie side for my taste.

Easy read, good stories, the are some parralels with his other book but you won't regret reading both, they arnt the same at all. this one is less hippie, but a little more than I'd like for a fishing book. Oh well, he makes great points to conservation or our natural resources which ever fisherman should get behind.
