Format: Paperback
I give this book a 5, and I own a lot of fishing books.
When I first purchased the book it seemed a bit small, would it be worth it? It was.
In short chapters it discusses how to improve your fishing, tournament ethics, and family fishing. That's a lot of ground.
Tired of all those birds nests in your spinning reel? Why not follow Shaw's advice and cast and tug your line gently. No more snarls. Shaw doesn't use the word ethics but that's what he's talking about for tournaments. Read it, and you'll fish differently with your buddies. As for family, Shaw's kind remarks about his wife, kids and dad are special.
I didn't realize it until now but this is a great kid's book also. It works on different levels. Hope the review helps.

As a novice fisherman, I found that Shaw Grigsby has a grasp of what one needs to become a "real fisherman." It takes alot more than casting and hoping that a fish will take the bait. It is a very cerebral sport and Mr. Grigsby is able to get across in his writing how to fish the correct way and to be most productive in your endeavor. One thing that made me feel good was when he wrote about even the best fishermen, champions, sometimes getting "Skunked." Just a real delight to read and very easy reading too. My most recent fising trip was kind of a flop, but I did use his advice and it worked. Wonderful book for the novice or the veteran fisherman. Would love to meet Shaw Grigsby and pick his mind on the wonderful sport of fishing.

This is an interesting book all around. Its like a neat biography on grisby with very detailed explanations on his techniques. I didnt understand what sight fishing was until i read this. I liked the biography side and the technique side. I have no complaints and has plenty of reread value.

I've probably read almost every fishing book available, but Shaw Grigsby's book is the best. Not only does it teach you advanced fishing techniques, but it reminds you about what's really important in life. Reading this book made me a better fisherman and a better person. You should read this book, and then read it again.

I happen to know Shaw personally and bought the book because of that fact. But boy was I surprised that even being the wife of a fellow fisherman the book really made his experiences come to life for me. It is not only about fishing and techniques but about Life! Noone can tell a story like Shaw Grigsby! Everyone should read this book! Even the family and friends of fishermen will enjoy this book! I have given it for gifts to everyone I know!

At 47 years old I am new to bass fishing. As a trout fisherman all my life I have never been a fan Bass fishing! This book has given me all the basics of how to catch and understand Mr. Bass in very easy to read format. Plus it offers an outlook that will change your point of view of life and fishing. An author I would really like to meet!

The title of my review is evident throughout this fine book. Anyone serious about bass fishing should read it. I've read my copy about 4 times already (since 1998 when I bought it) and it never seems old. This is a MUST have.

WoW! Stories of Grigsby's dance with "MR. Bass" and his dance with life. - "Few experiences in life have the forever magic of the first time a father and son fish together. Fathers and fishing are words that go together. They have always gone together. And they always will" - This is the fishing I learned from my father and the fishing I want to teach my children. Oh Yea, and plenty of great tips and techniques that are practical enough for you and me.
