I purchased this book for my Minnesota brother who would rather be ice fishing than doing anything else in the winter, including reading, and he pronounced the book "excellent." We consider him a little odd so I read the book myself for a little enlightenment and found it covers the sport from all angles and with beautiful photos. It was fascinating to read about the special equipment and ice fishing "houses" from shacks to palaces. The comaraderie of those involved comes across with the narrative on every page.

I received this book for Christmas. I'm a long time ice fisherman and found this book to be a rewarding read. The photography is excellent. This is not a "How to Ice Fish" book but rather a graceful walk across the ice and the world and wonder of ice fishing.
You will hear the snow crunch under your boots and watch your frozen breath disappear into the frozen blue morning sky of distant lakes in one chapter. In others you will visit the strange, often exotic and colorful world of the Ice fishing house and their entrenched inhabitants.

You will find out how ice fishing has evolved from a broom stick and a bucket to what can be a high tech gizmo getaway.

This book allows you to experience what the authors describe as the Theater of the Absurd at Ice fishing competition extravaganzas.

So find a warm comfortable chair grab your favorite beverage and settle in to find out as the sub title reads..............."Ice fishing and Why We do it"

...where was any mention of "Lake of the Woods" which is in northern MN and is shared with Manitoba and Ontario Canada? Lake of the Woods is extremely popular when it comes to ice-fishing and it's really surprising to see it left completely out of a book like this. I got this book for my husband for Christmas and he does like it and enjoyed reading it and looking at all the pictures, but feels the author overlooked some prime fishing territory when he left out Lake of the Woods. Maybe next time!
