All Fishermen Are Liars

In addition to a starring role in one of the 2014 F3T films, and cameo in another, John Geirach is soon to be out with a new book.

In All Fishermen Are Liars, Gierach travels across North America from the Pacific Northwest to the Canadian Maritimes to seek out quintessential fishing experiences. Whether he's fishing a busy stream or a secluded lake amid snow-capped mountains, Gierach insists that fishing is always the answer-even when it's not clear what the question is. All Fishermen Are Liars covers fishing topics large and small: the art of fly-tying and the quest for the perfect steelhead fly; fishing in the Presidential Pools previously fished by the first President George Bush; and the importance of traveling with like-minded companions when caught in a soaking downpour. ("At this point someone is required to say, 'You know, there are people who wouldn't think this is fun.'")
Gierach may occasionally lose a fish, but he never loses his passion for fishing or his sense of humor.

In conjunction with the April book launch Geirach will also be embarking on a multi city book signing tour.


The Itch To Use A Fly-Rod

The Gray Ghost Murders

Montana’s favorite fly fisherman detective is back on the case in this compelling follow-up to The Royal Wulff Murders.

When the graves of two men are discovered on Sphinx Mountain, Sheriff Martha Ettinger suspects murder.  But with the only evidence a hole in a skull that might or might not have been caused by a bullet, she once more finds herself turning to private investigator Sean Stranahan for help. Stranahan already has a case, having been hired by a group of eccentric fly fishermen called The Madison River Liars and Fly Tiers Club to find a valuable fly that they suspect has been stolen. Could the disappearance of a vintage Gray Ghost from a riverside cabin in the Madison Valley be connected to the gray ghosts who haunt Sphinx Mountain?
