Fishermen love to talk. Visit any number of their outdoor forums on the Internet and you'll see what I mean. And they also ask a lot of questions. Time and time again as I hung out on those forums, I knew the answers. But their questions just kept running on and on just like the fish and they simply would not let up. That is why I elected to write. I had the information.
I live in Florida . I spin fish and I fly fish. I have chased so many species around the USA and Canada that my wife is totally convinced I've got “fish on the brain.”
She's right. But I also have Alaska in my heart, and everything I wrote in my books comes from it. That place is the most fantastic destination I have ever encountered and it is a fisherman's dream. The publishing industry goes by this rule in the acceptance of non-fiction, “If the market is there, and there is no product that fulfills the market, then write your books.” And so I have.
