All Fishermen Are Liars brims with true stories of the most eccentric crew member, the funniest episode, the biggest fish, and the wildest night at sea. Denizens of the Dry Dock drift in and out as the bar begins to swell with rounds of drinks and tales that increase in drama. Here are some of the greatest fishing stories ever--all relayed by Linda Greenlaw in her inimitable style.
All Fishermen Are Liars will give readers what they have come to love and expect from Linda Greenlaw--luminous descriptions and edge-of-the-seat thrills. It's the perfect book for anyone who loves fishing and the sea.
"'Oh big deal. Twelve hours? Try that routine for three days. Your boat is like the Queen Elizabeth compared to what I used to put to sea in. You've been spoiled. Why, I remember a time when...' And in the truest one-upmanship fashion, my friend painted a picture that made my horror story look like a kid's cartoon. I could feel the ladies who were playing bridge stop their game and perch on the edge of their chairs behind me. The Island Boys had spun around on their bar stools and were leaning toward our table. The suit-and-ties ordered more coffee, and the islanders knew there would be later ferries toward home. Everyone loves a sea story. No one tells one quite like Alden."

Just finished reading this book. I rate it a 2 on a scale of 1-10. Linda must have had a contract to get out three books by a certain time period, she should have waited till she had good material. The section about the kids visiting her was terrible and a waste of reading time. Someone needs to work with her on the proof to verify if the material is worth publishing, this wasn't worth the time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
