Reviews for Salt Water’s Greatest Gamefish
This is a book for fishermen, written by a fisherman and, from a fishing standpoint, a very well educated and experienced one at that. Tom Boyd not only speaks the language, he has been around the block a couple of times, amassing several IGFA records along the way….His achievements aside, the book is intended to teach you to be a better fisherman and, if you follow his suggestions and learn from his experience, that is what you soon will be.
PJ Jacobs, The Complete Fly Fisherman
Despite its subtitle ‘Techniques and Tactics to Catch the Top 35 Species’ this book offers more than an instruction manual on the ‘whats’, ‘hows’ and ‘wheres’ of saltwater game fishing. As someone who is interested in fly-fishing generally and enjoys winter daydreams of white sand and blue water where the best method of travel is a poled skiff, I found this an enjoyable read.
