    Thanks for getting the info I needed! Your book is just awesome! I give it 5 stars! It makes things simple that some knowledgeable fishermen are reluctant to give out. Keep up the good work! Tight lines to you!

    So Many Fish, and it¿s only the second season!

    Thank you! Your book saved me a lot of time and money. I'm new to the sport and two seasons of catching some fish and wow I can't believe the difference. The fish handling in your book opened my eyes, and to my friends, and we leave the nets at home. Thanks again for the education lesson! It is truly worth all your efforts
