"A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout": Book Uses Fly-Fishing as Hilarious Metaphor for Finding Mr. Right This Spring

"A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout" illuminates the murky waters of the dating pool with insights inspired by fly-fishing techniques and advice. You might say it’s "The Rules" crossed with Izaak Walton’s "The Compleat Angler." Who knew there was dating advice in wading wisdom?

ALBUQUERQUE, NM (PRWEB) March 28, 2005 -- It’s more complicated than just hook, line and sinker when women want to snatch a perfect “catch” this spring after a long cold winter of relationship hibernation. However, Gail Rubin expertly guides women “anglers” through the murky waters of the dating pool to help them snag that perfect “trouser trout” in her book, "A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout: Reflections on Dating and Fly-Fishing" (AuthorHouse).

"A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout" helps a woman define her own angling style in the hunt for her trophy trout. This witty, sometimes spicy book dishes information on other fish in the sea to avoid, quality streams to fish (places to meet good men), leader lines to cast (conversation openers) and natural, artificial and exotic lures to utilize. What to do when the fishing hole runs dry, prospects for angling in the later years, trouser trout tips and tall tales of trout landed or lost round out this quirky, yet informative guide to successful dating “fishing” excursions.

The book starts with an overview of how trout fishing relates to dating, comparing information from the first English text on fly-fishing, written, ironically, by Dame Juliana Berners around 1425. Rubin helps women mold their personal angling styles and identify the many species of trout on the market. For example, Rainbow trout are the athletic types, Golden trout are wealthy and trout relatives, such as salmon, are the spiritual types.

Equipment is a necessity when fishing, and Rubin helps women build an arsenal of natural, artificial and exotic lures, including clothing and footwear, interesting jewelry, live bait such as pet animals, synthetic enhancements, and attitude adjustments. She delves into further study of expert angling, including understanding the trout habitat, approaching the waters and enduring those days when a woman can’t seem to get a bite.

"A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout" won first place in the nonfiction book category of the 18th Annual SouthWest Writers writing contest. Rubin’s 30-year angling career has included a “catch and release” first marriage and a second marriage to her trophy trout in 2000.

The book is available online for $15.50 at and, and at a discount direct from the publisher at
