Reviews

"John Gierach is one of the most successful fishing writers of all time, and with good reason. In his 17th book, Gierach reminds us in a delightful way that fishing never has been just about catching, though he can teach us a lot about that, too. . . . Despite taking trips as a famous angler to exotic fishing locales, Gierach has retained his down-to-earth fishing honesty and has never forgotten that some of the best stories are about wading a trout stream just down the road."--David Shaffer "Minneapolis Star Tribune "
"All Fishermen Are Liars is rich in the savvy, humor, and sidelong takes on our sport that have made all of John's books such addictive reading."--Paul Schullery, author of If Fish Could Scream and The Fishing Life
"John Gierach remains the most consistently eloquent fly fishing writer of modern times."--James R. Babb, Editor, Gray's Sporting Journal
"[Gierach's] writing here is unfailingly witty, generous of spirit and full of hard-won but easily shared knowledge. . . . It goes without saying that Gierach is a masterful storyteller, but what's even more obvious after reading Liars is that he is a profoundly skilled writer."--Steve Duda "The Flyfish Journal "
"[Gierach is ] one of the best when it comes to bringing the heart and soul of fly fishing to anglers everywhere."--D'Arcy Egan "The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) "
"A fisherman's testimony to the faithful. . . . [An] Elegiac tribute to the elusive art and ineffable pleasure of fly-fishing, with plenty of information about how it's done by true practitioners."--Kirkus Reviews
"Perceptive and witty. . . . These lyrical essays explode with descriptions of beautiful places, big fish, and beautiful fish. . . . But Gierach can write about more than trout and salmon."--Booklist
