Reviews

"Come for the fish stories, but stay for the writing--it sparkles like the flank of a mullet, thumps like the tail of a bull redfish, and leaps off the page like a tarpon." ---David DiBenedetto, Editor in Chief, Garden & Gun Magazine

"Novelists Joy (The Line That Held Us) and Rickstad (What Remains of Her) have pulled off the feat of assembling a fishing anthology that even non-anglers can enjoy, featuring essays from various writers that pay tribute to the beauty, peacefulness, and, sometimes, humor that accompany this pursuit." --Publishers Weekly

"Anglers of all stripes will relish these delectable morsels of love." --Kirkus Reviews
