If you're starting to think about fishing season but realize it's still a tad bit cold to try for your favorite species, consider settling in a comfortable couch and reading Keith Sutton's new book, "Out There Fishing." This book is the work of the diehard sportsman, conservationist, editor and freelance author from Arkansas who used to be the editor of "Arkansas Wildlife" magazine. The work spans four decades of hardcore angling throughout the Western Hemisphere. Stores span the gamut, from a farm pond behind his house to the Amazon River in Brazil. He describes incidents like battling a giant sturgeon, fighting a catfish weighing hundreds of pounds and encountering gun-wielding bandits in the Mexican outback, Sutton has written seven books and countless magazine articles. -- Gerald Almy, Northern Virginia Daily, December 2006
Loosened-up by the freedom of the internet and his regular "Out There" column within the outdoors section of ESPN.com, Keith Sutton is one of the few freshwater fishing writers to take a travel and narrative approach to fishing for catfish, gar, and anything else in freshwater that catches his fancy. These entertaining pieces were recently gathered together in Out There Fishing with Keith "Catfish" Sutton. -- Author: Craig Buddo, May 2007
From the Back Cover
Part memoir, part travelogue, Out There Fishing documents a mixture of passion, awe, wanderlust and a relentless attraction to wild places, special people and extraordinary fish. Whether he's fishing for bullheads with his toddler son or plying the rivers of South America for the saber-toothed payara, Sutton will keep you laughing, crying and on the edge of your seat.
