We’ve expanded our reviews to include fishing books, and we’re dropping two of those reviews right now. These two books are relatively new, I think they were both published this year, so you should be able to find them on Amazon or your nearest big ass book store. We’ve also got some vintage fishing books that we plan on reviewing later so stay tuned.
Tiggie: The Lure and Lore of Commercial Fishing in New England is a collection of stories from Charles “Tiggie” Peluso who moved to Cape Cod in 1946 after World War II to start his life as a commercial fisherman. Tiggie took surprisingly well to the lifestyle despite the uncertain income, danger and extremely hard work. Not only did he master offshore fishing for sea scallops, longlining for cod, haddock and halibut, but he eventually moved inshore and mastered fishing for bay scallops, quahogs, and even striped bass!
Every angler in the fishing game, from the clownish noobs to the seasoned pros, will eventually realize that to get the upper hand one must always appreciate and acknowledge the wisdom of the “old guys.” No matter what enormous quantity of technical fishing information you’ve read, nothing can top the years of practical “on the water” experience accumulated in the bones of the older fishermen. In “Catfish Hunters”, the reader receives insights into catfishing derived from 120 collective years between the authors, Jake Bussolini and Mac Byrum. From hilarious anecdotes of being stabbed by a catfish barb, to suppositions that some of the “young folk” have taken to licking catfish for depraved recreational purposes, this book is flavoured with many elements above and beyond the text book qualities of many other examples of fishing literature.
