Another Lousy Day in Paradise

John Gierach, Author, Glenn Wolff, Illustrator Simon & Schuster $22 (240p) ISBN 978-0-684-82424-6
An affinity between fly-fishing and good writing is evident in these engaging essays. Gierach (Dances with Trout) quips that patience is required for both. He writes about fishing for brook trout in Labrador, Atlantic salmon in Scotland and New Brunswick, grayling in the Northwest Territories. He enters a fly-fishing carp tournament and defends the carp as a sport fish. Gierach gives advice on how to choose a fishing lodge and discusses winter fishing, deer hunting and the rising popularity of fly-fishing. He advocates a clean, healthy, diverse environment in which to go fishing. Upbeat and entertaining. Illustrations not seen by PW. (May)
