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 water they aren’t familiar with sing [Gooch’s] praises, because the Virginia Fishing Guide is the road map to 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."
