This intimate glimpse behind John Gierach's vise focuses on the trout flies he has found most successful and how he ties them. There are chapters on how he developed as a fly tyer - from being a hopeless tinkerer who tried every pattern there was to settling on a large handful of favorite patterns that now catch most of his trout... Throughout, the book is punctuated with fishing stories and observations on days astream as well as days at his vise, all in Gierach's inimitable style... rambling a little, following this thread and that, always full of wit and deft experience and that special down-home style that has made him America's favorite fly-fishing author.

I love all of John Gierach's books This is the 3 or 4th book I have read by Gierach

I love all of John Gierach's books. Who wouldn't want to know the go to fly patterns the author uses after a lifetime of fishing and refining flies? This book is informative and will change the dry flies I carry and tie. The book cries out for photos of the flies though. I know this is not author's style which is focused on the narrative, not the object; yet the flies themselves are the focus of this book. This is the 3 or 4th book I have read by Gierach.

John Gierach is a highly trusted and trustable opinion-maker in fly-fishing. People take what he says to the bank

The 12-page introduction lays out Gierach’s personal history of simultaneously taking up both fly fishing and fly tying.

I need to spend more time browsing the shelves of the local Gibson’s Book Store. Gierach’s writing appeals to me the way Ernest Hemingway attracts English majors. He uses a vivid down-to-earth style combined with an expert’s understanding of his subject matter. The 12-page introduction lays out Gierach’s personal history of simultaneously taking up both fly fishing and fly tying. Like the beginner eager to catch as many small trout as possible, he tied and fished every pattern he could get his hands on.

It's easy to forget that in between his collections of essays, John Gierach has published a number of slender volumes . Offers a glimpse into the mind of the fly fisherman, and focuses on the trout flies he has found most successful and how he ties them.

I've loved books and fishing since my youngest years, although I did not start fly fishing until 1993. My library reflects my tastes and interests, and so will this column. It's not that I dislike his work; most of it just doesn't do much for me.

Talk about Good Flies: Favorite Trout Patterns and How They Got That Way

Good read but not much new. Gierach presents logical and reasonable explanations for why certain flies worked in the paast and why they will probably always work. It is easy to forget that fish aren't reasonable, or logical. They may or may not think like humans. I have caught them on pop off tabs from soda cans, pieces of rubber, and bare hook. My best flies/lures alll have one or more hooks plainly visible and they still eat them. Read John Wyatt for world changing perspective.

I am 2/3 through this book. Its a good read, but focuses primarily on small flies from Western streams. I haven seen the Wooly Bugger or Clouser yet.... in the book. Lots of variants on nearly the same fly - as the author admits. This is the 3 or 4th book I have read by Gierach. Its more similar to his book on Bamboo rods, rather than the others like Trout Bum etc. It details this topic more than it reflects on experiences and life as his regular books seem to.

so good i am rereading it a week after i first read it
Best West
Its good, but it not "Trout."

Great bench side companion. As always this author is educational as well as entertaining . If you're interested in the origin of a fly as well as the best way to tie it, this book delivers. Good investment!

The book is basically a rant on different flies and how they differ and what you can do and shouldn't do to them. Informative and interesting but it's not a typical John Gierach book like you've read before. Now, would I still buy this book . . . YES, it's still full of interesting tips for those who spend the winter tying.

I was surprised at some of these flies. It’s a collection of older flies than I expected... and I’m not a spring chicken! But it’s spun it a typical way by this great fishing author.
Gierach is always a good read!
