What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“An artful narrative.”—The Wall Street Journal

“In Burke’s hands, the biggest fish stories become human stories, at once optimistic and tragic, about what keeps us casting into the water of a dream.”—Forbes

“A window to a very small universe where obsession, greed, and chicanery coexist with a strange nobility . . . Sowbelly is a fascinating examination of obsession even for readers who don’t fish.”—St. Petersburg Times

“Monte Burke is the Homer of America’s fishing world as he takes us on an epic journey filled with great drama, colorful characters, and elusive largemouth bass.” —Tom Brokaw
