The latest, correct me if I'm wrong, from Gierach.

I don't know what it is about John Gierach, but I continue to buy his books. Maybe it's that he writes as if he assumes you know quite a bit about the sport already. He cuts straight through all the bull and has a style that I enjoy reading. It's just stories that are told well and that are believable mixed in with sarcasm and humor.

I've got a collection of fly fishing books, four of them are by John Gierach. I always find that most his books have enough interesting stories that I can continue to read through them.

I'm reading my first Gierach book, "Death, Taxes and Leaky Waders." It's a great book of short stories and I'm learning quite a bit about flies, hatches and many other fly fishing tactics.

I like reading them because I can read a chapter here and there until I finish it. With a collection of shorter stories it's not like I have to remember what's going on. Just read when I want to.

I am building a Gierach collection as well.
