At the Grave of the Unknown Fisherman Review

October 1, 2004 By: Marshall Cutchin

John Corrigan delivers another excellent book review, this time of Gierach’s At the Grave of the Unknown Fisherman, in the Concord (New Hampshire) Monitor. “Gierach’s collections of essays usually include a chapter on a species generally not seen as a popular quarry for fly casters. In Unknown Fisherman he plays out his anti-snobbery inclinations with a description of carp. He writes that purists are offended by either the species or those with the audacity to fish for them.”
