The FN Book Club is back! This month we read John Gierach's newest book "A Fly Rod of Your Own" we loved the book and we got to talk with John! This is a big deal. Thanks to Simon and Schuster for helping us set this up. John Gierach, “the voice of the common angler” (The Wall Street Journal) and member of the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame, brings his sharp sense of humor and keen eye for observation to the fishing life and, for that matter, life in general. John Gierach is known for his witty, trenchant observations about fly-fishing. In A Fly Rod of Your Own (Simon & Schuster; April 4, 2017; $25.00), Gierach once again takes us into his world and scrutinizes the art of fly-fishing. He travels to remote fishing locations where the airport is not much bigger than a garage and a flight might be held up because a passenger is running late. He sings the praises of the skilled pilots who fly to remote fishing lodges in tricky locations and bad weather. He explains why even the most veteran fisherman seems to muff his cast whenever he’s being filmed or photographed. He describes the all-but-impassable roads that fishermen always seem to encounter at the best fishing spots and why fishermen discuss four-wheel drive vehicles almost as passionately and frequently as they discuss fly rods and flies. And while he’s on that subject, he explains why even the most conscientious fisherman always seems to accumulate more rods and flies than he could ever need.

5 Flies every freshwater fisher needs -Rich Collins Elk Hair Caddis (Caddis on the surface, dry fly that can be stripped under the surface or skittered) Black Wooly Bugger (I prefer cone head with legs) (Stonefly or leech emulator) Bead head nymph - essentially emulates nymphs of any species (Gold Ribbed Hare’s Ear or Prince Nymph) Parachute Adams - an all around mayfly staple San Juan Worm - its a worm fly. A good old fashioned trout worm/Dilliy emulator. Trail it off an egg pattern and you get what they call a “Spaghetti and Meatball” rig. Bonus points: The duracell. Its a UV threaded numph on a jig head. Think of it as the “Iron man” fly - an all business, all action Nymph. Rich sat down with the folks over at Postfly Box monthly subscription service www.postflybox.com Fish in the News Fish in the News https://www.saltstrong.com/articles/fishing-lure-left-in-a-fishs-mouth/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Blog&utm_content=Fishing+lure+in+mouth#content http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/793449/Fish-facts-pool-knowledge-solve-problems-study?utm_source=applenews http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2017/04/24/525111293/what-fish-is-good-for-me-and-the-planet-new-documentary-explores
