I love John McPhee and this book did not disappoint me. He can talk about a fish for page after page, with a fair amount of detail and I love every page. Read morePublished 3 months ago by T. L. Holcomb
I am a John McPhee fan, for many reasons. His books are readable, and you learn a lot without ever feeling like you are just having facts thrown at you. Read morePublished 6 months ago by westlady
I had previously only thought of the Shad as a baitfish--it was mind boggling to see what an inspirational piscatorial critter it really was in our history.Published 7 months ago by Michael C. Rainnie
McPhee at his best. Witty, entertaining. Put it on your kindle so you can keep up with his vocabulary.Published 8 months ago by Margaret
This was a gift for my brother who is a fisherman; he loved it! I have read almost everything that McPhee has written, so I MUST remember to borrow this back!!!Published 11 months ago by Julie A. Smith

Incredible book all about shad.
They used to be so plentiful especially in the Pennsylvania area and Delaware that the river looked black.
Really interesting history.
