Audible Editor Reviews

E. Donnall Thomas takes listeners on a journey from Alaska to the Galapagos Islands, among many breathtaking locales, in an exploration of the oceans, which he deems "the new frontier" for fly fishermen. Michael Scherer gives an inviting performance that matches Thomas' casual but informative writing, which alternates between adventure tales and descriptions of unusual game fish and tips on how to best prepare them for a meal. Redfish, Bluefish, Sheefish, Snook manages to be both entertaining and educational, providing fishermen with great stories and advice on species they may have never thought to catch before.

    "Left me wanting more"
    What did you love best about Redfish, Bluefish, Sheefish, Snook?

    Helped me get through months of law school when I couldn't get out and fish. Don has a scientist's pragmatic view of things, which I appreciate, but he also can still tell an exciting story. I've been fishing my whole life, but I feel like I've barely scratched the surface after hearing some of the adventures he has been on in this book. Very inspiring.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Hard to say, possibly the Halibut fishing with a fly rod, but I also loved hearing about the GTs. Also good to hear someone with his expertise enjoys catching some of the same blue-collar fish I do.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, especially if you like fishing and have ever picked up a fly rod. Although I wouldn't limit this book to only people who fly fish, as I normally am on the water with a spinning rod and live bait.


    Any additional comments?

    Nothing on audible right now really compares in terms of satiating one's appetite for fishing stories like this book, and you might learn something.
