    A series of monthly stories at various stages of Brett's life as he fishes the local waters. Highly recommend.

    I purchased this book from the author last winter at a Kent Island fishing show. It is a very good read about local fly angling but it is not a "how to" book. Gaba discusses the joy of casting for bass and pan fish in Eastern Shore ponds and the satisfaction of catching stripers in tidal waters on the fly. He also discusses the detours in his angling pursuits caused by the demands of life we all face as we mature. It has the flavor of John Gierach's fly fishing writings with a local slant that includes recipes of Chesapeake dishes and iconic Chesapeake Bay photos from Aubrey Bodine. I highly recommend it.

    Definitely a great book. You don't have to be a fisherman to enjoy it.

    I agree with everyone. I enjoyed the book. I've also had the fortunate pleasure of going to Washington College, being in the same fraternity, and playing rugby with Brett along with, of course, fishing. That is before he moved schools to the enemy. He's a great guy and I've always enjoyed his writing from the early days of World Wide Angler to this book. I caught my fist fish on the fly in an Eastern Shore farm pond with him which is always a great memory. Great book and a worthy read to any Chesapeake fisherman.
