Hi, Frank. I fish the surf up here on the Massachusetts North Shore. Just finished reading Eastern Tides and I had to send you some fan mail.

I picked the book up seeking some tips on striper fishing...hey, when you can't fish, reading about it will sometimes keep you going. Eastern Tides has plenty of fishing lore, so I wasn't disappointed. I also got a special kick out of reading about the places I love; I've spent a lot of time over the past 40 years on the outer Cape's beaches, as well as in, on and around Pleasant Bay. That's one beautiful bay, in spite of what the developers have done to most of the surrounding area.

Those are some of the reasons I enjoyed Eastern Tides, but they're just icing, really. The best part was that, like most good books, it wasn't just about what it was about. That's some good writing, buddy. Thanks.

"Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he'll piss away the kids' tuition fund on fancy equipment he doesn't need, stay out late at night, come home smelling like a dead mackerel, and start hanging around with some really questionable characters."

I can see that you're right. And I know we can trust a man of your experience never to get the two confused...

Dave, rereading your post, I see you did something that is common: You bought the wrong book if you were looking for tips on fishing. Still, I see you enjoyed it and that is the main thing.

Each book has a mission:

Tweenty Years on the Cape -- autobiograghy
Striper Surf * -- how-to
Hot spots -- locations directory
Trophy Striper * -- monster facts and methods
Eastern Tides -- a read

* = you should of bought
