Publisher's Summary

The star of the Discovery Channel's River Monsters and author of the best-selling River Monsters shares a meditation on fishing - and life.

In his best-selling first book, Jeremy Wade, the star of the hit TV series River Monsters, memorably recounted his adventures on six continents in pursuit of fish of staggering proportions and terrifying demeanor. Now "the greatest angling explorer of his generation" (Independent on Sunday) returns to delight listeners with a book of an entirely different sort, the book he was always destined to write - the distillation of a life spent fishing. Thoughtful and funny, brimming with wisdom and above all, adventure, these are pitch-perfect reflections that anyone who has ever fished will identify with, for ultimately it touches on what fishing teaches us all about life.

Meh- ok....

Not bad, but not a “how to” book as the title implies. This is really war stories from JW. I’ve never seen his show, so not much for me. I was hoping for more “thinking” and tips, but it’s stories. Good performance and good stuff in there, but overall a “meh” for me.

An honest account of a man possessed by his desire to fish

It is rare to find a book like this. Like, about fishing. Why? I don’t know, most fishermen are probably too busy fishing or getting gear ready to fish or researching fishing spots. All of these fishing related pressures are shared and detailed in this book with attention to detail and interesting story lines. I listened twice and found myself looking for something similar afterword - haven’t found it yet. Great book and performance. Thank you.

Enjoyable

this is an enjoyable listen though I wasn't able to get into as much as Jeremy Wade's other novel River Monsters. this one is very much a how to or guide to fishing vs the more memoir style of River Monsters. I still enjoyed it, and Jeremy Wade's narration was fine. just not my favorite.
