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."
