Now Serving Fresh Fishing Literature

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.

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.
