Now fans of this timeless activity will celebrate their passion with celebrities across the globe within the pages of Celebrity Fish Talk. In this unique treasure trove of stories, author David Strege amuses and amazes readers while feeding the public’s insatiable appetite for peeking into the private lives of stars from Hollywood, TV, music, and sports.

Readers will be riveted as Kevin Costner reveals how he faced his own "Perfect Storm,” while Coach Bobby Knight recalls the day he managed to reel in a trophy Atlantic salmon after the reel handle broke off, while fishing with Ted Williams.
