    EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!

    I PURCHASED THE JAMES RIVER GUIDE JUST BEFORE FLOATING A SECTION OF THE RIVER. THE BOOK WAS RIGHT ON. IT GIVES YOU ACCURATE INFORMATION ON EVERYTHING FROM LURE SELECTION TO HOW TO NAVIGATE THE RAPIDS YOU ENCOUNTER. THE JAMES RIVER GUIDE IS AN EXCELLENT, FUN TO READ BOOK THAT IS A 'MUST HAVE ' IF YOU PLAN TO FLOAT THE JAMES RIVER.
