    A multigenerational story that brings up growing up and growing

    A multigenerational story that brings up growing up and growing older and lifespan activities such as fishing. When the author was young he went fishing with his father and now his son does. A story of intergenerational sharing and caring.

    For Father's Day, Mother's Day, Anyone's Day

    This tale of fishing together is universal. It's about time at the water's edge. It's about passing time, and passing along knowledge. It's about that bond that something simple and mysterious and giddy as catching a fish can provide. By no means a kid's book, although children would certainly enjoy it. The photographs look more like watercolors, and the images are as much of my family as they are of the author's. A lasting celebration of that childhood fishing trip. For father's day, sure. And for any other person and any other day. PLUS a very cool fishing secret to pass along to your own small child.
