Audible Editor Reviews

Paul Salmon, a.k.a. "The Big Fish", the renowned, 6'7" Australian Football League player, has a lifetime of athletic stories to tell. In Fish Tales Salmon regales listeners with humorous and noteworthy yarns from his 20 years as a ruckman and forward in the league. He recounts these stories himself, seeming to get as much enjoyment out of the memories as listeners will derive. Salmon calls the collection "an album of snapshots of my life in football", and above all he seems grateful to have had the opportunity to field so many friends and experiences. His voice relates an intense joie de vivre and he occasionally chuckles pleasantly at his own recollections. No wonder he was a league favorite.

Publisher's Summary

There's another side to Australian Football League legends such as Jason Dunstall, Shane Crawford, and James Hird, not to mention Kevin Sheedy's little quirks. Have you heard the story about the time Sheeds had to play the part of one of the Three Little Pigs? Or how hysterical chickens found their way into Bomber Thompson's new car during training? Who put white powder in the Essendon doctor's bag that was then detected at the airport? And why is John Platten a 'footy-trip legend'?

Paul Salmon, the Big Fish, knows the answers and reveals them in this collection of the funniest incidents that have happened on and off the field in his long football career. From practical jokes at training nights to an unexpected encounter on Sydney's Oxford Street, from the problems he has encountered pursuing an occasional television career to the difficulties of being a father, his stories will have you laughing out loud.
