Purity (in fly fishing) by nostalgia is an interesting idea, but the logic of it is inescapable. If we carry purism to its logical conclusion, to do it right youd have to live naked in a cave, hit your trout on the head with rocks, and eat them raw. But, so as no to violate another essential element of the fly fishing tradition, the rocks would have to be quarried in England and cost $300 each. -John Gierach


This is great! I may need to read some Gierach.

Gierach is a truly entertaining writer. Some of the best fishing writing out there, fly-fishing or otherwise.

Yes Louis, I've always tried to keep one toe in the Pleistocene.
