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.
Doctor, angler, and raconteur Donald Thomas takes fishermen on a rollicking road trip through Alaska, Costa Rica, Australia, the Galapagos, and more. Fishing in oceans along the way, he enjoys the kind of adventures most people can only dream of. Each chapter includes a sidebar that gives Thomas an opportunity to riff entertainingly on a particular game fish, as well as an “At a Glance” section with both the current IGFA All-Tackle and Fly-Rod world records for that species. The fish he tackles include the sheefish (North America’s “most elusive and mysterious game fish”), smallmouth bass, mojarra and machaca, barramundi, mahi-mahi, and many more.
