"For any man who has ever wanted to make his father proud and bond with his brothers, you must read The Perfect Catch. It's perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors, loves to fish, and is not afraid to put love back into the tricky dynamic of male relationships in the family and among friends."
--Dr. Marty Becker, "America's Veterinarian"
"Kevin has done it again. He always finds a way to use sports as a backdrop to bring people together. The Perfect Catch is a warm story that will touch you."
--Jim Nantz, Sportscaster
Seventy-three-year-old Bob Walsh didn't bother to ask his three adult sons if they would like to join him on a Thanksgiving week fly fishing trip to western New York before he booked and paid for it. It had been five years since all four men had been together, and they didn't have another five years to wait.
As prized steelhead trout returned to the river to spawn where they were born, the Walshes retraced their roots, reeling in fish and each other; settling old beefs, reconnecting as friends, and bonding as men. And oh yes, one unforgettable fish was caught by the man who made it all happen. The Perfect Catch is written for men by a man. It is a book that wives will want their husbands to read, and a book that any decent man should have in his hands.

I bought this book for my husband...he rarely reads as he is blind in one eye. He read this cover to cover because of the excellent story, and the ability to identify with the story. Kevin Walsh writes about fly fishing and his wonderful family of brothers, and his dad. Their guided trip to N.Y. was a huge success as they caught and released one beautiful fish after another. The real success was being able to bond with his brothers and dad again. I had to read it , and it was funny, thoughtful, and made me want to head out to a river myself. Great book for the men in your lives! Loved it!
