"The book points out how fishing has winners and losers, but there are lessons to learn either way. In the end, angler readers may be reminded of who they are as it relates to fishing and the resource. They may also be influenced by the author to personally promote the magnificent sport of fishing.
"Montgomery takes the reader from Missouri to Florida to Africa and beyond to show how fishing reaches beyond geographical boundaries. He points out similarities and differences in location that serve to underpin the reasons why we fish.
"Those of us who recall turning over rocks for crawdads and catching grasshoppers by hand will be reminded of even more childhood memories of fishing in Montgomery's writing. He obviously enjoys the memories of his childhood and enjoys more the sharing of the pleasures that came in times gone by and why those pleasures need to be passed on to our youth."
