"Lousy Day" is John Gierach's writing at its vintage best - as "human and witty and memorable and perceptive as any prose of its kind" (Nick Lyons). Here Gierach presents us with a wonderful and witty collection of meditations on the fishing life, sharing his thoughts and anecdotes on topics ranging from the perils of getting a fishing rod past airport security to the joys of fishing in Labrador. In addition, he offers practical advice on shipping and traveling with expensive, fragile rods, and discusses flyfishing Colorado's Blue River in the dead of winter. For the culinary-oriented, Gierach has written a delectable chapter describing a repast of "casual confusion'' that included sockeye salmon, venison sausage, lightly smoked rainbow trout, and wild mushrooms and raspberries. Jon Kartman of Booklist writes "These tales cover the gamut of his fishing experiences, from salmon in Alaska and brook trout in Canada to splake (a hybrid of lake and brook trout) in Colorado. Like his previous collections, this one is thoroughly entertaining, engaging, and, in the end, just big fun." This popular book was serialized in American Way, Colorado Outdoors, and the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. This book is signed by the author
