Have you heard the buzz about Why We Fish, a new book by award-winning writer Robert Montgomery? During the short time since its publication, it already has collected 19 five-star reviews at Amazon.
Bill Dance, one of the world’s most famous and beloved anglers, says this:
“Your new book, Why We Fish, is a perfect example of your unbelievable talents, Robert, and it’s absolutely a masterpiece.”
At Examiner, author Ron Presley adds:
“Robert Montgomery’s book is jam-packed with recollection, education, philosophy, and fun as it searches for an answer to Why We Fish. I recommend it highly.”
And at The Online Fisherman, publisher Gary Poyssick contributes:
“Whether you read it like one string of spaghetti coming out of a very tasty sauce, or you pick at it like those pistachio nuts you really should stop eating by the thirty-dollar pound, taste it. It is worth the chews, and so is anything this guy spends the time writing.”
In Why We Fish, Montgomery reveals that we fish to remember and we fish to forget. We fish when we’re happy, and when we’re sad. We fish to bond with friends and family, or to be alone.
Whatever our motivation, no matter where we on the success spectrum, he explains, fishing makes our lives better in ways we never could have imagined. It slows us down. It sets us free. It teaches us about nature, even while showing us how much we don’t know. And fishing becomes the foundation of our fondest memories.
Not wanting his voice to be the only one in the book, Montgomery also asked nine others to contribute. They include Bill Dance, Dave Precht (B.A.S.S.), Dr. Bruce Condello (BigBluegill.com), Kathy Magers, Ken Cook (Fishing Tackle Retailer), Steve Chaconas (Potomac River guide), Teeg Stouffer (Recycled Fish), Ross Gordon (Mystery Tackle Box), Ben Leal, and Timothy Chad Montgomery.
