Great audio. Very good tips

If you could sum up Caught Me a Big'Un...and Then I Let Him Go! in three words, what would they be?

Great, but short

Great tips, stories, methods, etc. Good for a beginner to intermediate. JH does a great job with the book. Almost like a fireside chat from Uncle Jimmy. Just too short! I've listened to it twice so far; once to "listen" and the second to take notes and learn. Would recommend, but know its only 1.5 hrs.

Genuine

Jimmy Houston has a way with words that will get you imagination going and make you think you are on the boat right there with him. His calm voice and fishing experience is priceless. I only wish he had more audio books out as I could listen to them for years. Definately worth the money, loved it.
