Fishing adventures from the author of 50 Places to Fish Before You Die

These thirty stories take readers from leaping makos near the fairways of Torrey Pines to midnight Atlantic salmon fishing on the fabled Ponoi to encounters with very friendly mujeres on the streets of Havana . . . and even offer an unauthorized (yet unequivocal) account of Bob Dylan's 1970s obsession with fishing. Santella's peripatetic lifestyle and eye for entertaining details — even those that have little to do with the act of throwing flies at fish — will make you look at fishing in a whole different way.
