Editorial Reviews

Richmond Times-Dispatch

Until now, no book covered the state's major fishing waters from the mountains of Southwest Virginia to the waters of the Atlantic Ocean..Anglers who want to fish waters with which they aren't familiar will sing [Gooch's] praises, because the Virginia Fishing Guide is the road map top both the obscure and the best-known places to fish in the Old Dominion..A book that should be on the car seat of every Virginia angler.

Salt Water Sportsman
"If it swims in the waters of his home state, award-winning outdoor writer Bob Gooch tells you where to find it, what it will eat, and how big it will grow in this comprehensive look at fishing in Virginia.... If you’re fishing Virginia for the first time, this book will get you pointed in the right direction."
