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 tier 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.

John Gierach in Good Flies explores the tools he uses for fly tying and advocates those that are simple and basics, and he also makes his case for the use of natural materials. Then there are chapters on the flies themselves small, medium, and large mayflies (which is how he arrange them in his fly boxes), spinners, midges, caddis, hoppers, nymphs, and streamers.

Throughout, the book is punctuated with fishing stories and observations on days astream as well as days at his vise, all in John 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. No John Gierach fan will want to miss this delightful book on the heart of all fly fishing the fly.
