Default Book Talk: Fly Fishing the Striper Surf

In light of the success of Striper Surf, I was sure that a similar book, only this time devoted to fly fishing for stripers from shore, would be an unqualified success. Nothing like this had ever been done. Tabory's came closest but his approach was broader -- inshore and all possible species. It gave me the feeling that an editor had talked him into writing a broader subject -- the very thing they are always trying to do to broaden appeal. I have always campaigned for a more specific theme. Because mine was an original approach, I thought I had the subject knocked.

You are invited to reflect upon either the book itself or what I have said above; you don't have to be a fly fisher to have an opinion.
