"John Gierach is a master at spinning tales." --"The Denver Post" "Few writers, if any, have written about the implications of fly-fishing as eloquently as Ernest Hemingway in "The Big Two-Hearted River", but Gierach brings detailed insight and a sense of humor to the subject. . . . Gierach's genial campfire manner and woodsy witticisms should hook more than just the average fishing fanatic." --"Kirkus Reviews" "The master of fly-fishing strikes again with his latest adventures in waders." --Alan Pierleoni, "Sacramento Bee" "Even if you can't bait a hook or tie a fly, you may identify with America's best fishing writer, John Gierach, as he details 'the delightful torture known as fly fishing'--and a lot more--in the 20 essays that make up "No Shortage of Good Days"." --Steve Bennett, "Houston Chronicle" "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. There are many technically correct fishing writers and many with a unique voice, but few bring together these two sides of fishing literature quite like Gierach." --"Booklist "(starred review) "If you're a fisherman who also loves to read about fishing, you've probably heard of John Gierach, whose essays on fly fishing and life are full of humor, insight and irreverence. . . . just fun to read, as all of his books are." --Bob Frye, "Pittsburgh Tribune Review"
