Editorial Reviews

Al Ristori
"Soft baits have revolutionized saltwater lure fishing for everything from bottom fishers to stripers and tarpon—and there's no one better qualified to detail their use than Pete Barrett."
Michael Leech
"From the first time I stuck a plastic worm on the back of a bucktail jig nearly 40 years ago I have been a believer in soft plastics. 'Fishing Soft Baits in Saltwater' has broadened my knowledge considerably even after using plastics for years. It's a great reference for all saltwater anglers."
