These questions and more are answered within the pages of Fishing for Buffalo. Rob Buffler and Tom Dickson dispel myths and rumors about rough fish with credible biological information while also demonstrating the joy of angling for nontraditional fish. The wealth of information within qualifies this book as a fishing bible for the growing number of rough fishing enthusiasts in the United States and makes it easy to identify the rough fish you may catch. It even includes a sampling of Dickson and Buffler’s favorite recipes, such as Burbot Boulangère and Deviled Grilled Cisco.
Rough fish may be a lot of things—ugly, unruly, or elusive—but they are definitely not boring.

As the authors point out, we are missing some very good fishing because of our bias and misconceptions. As they point out...the Freshwater Drum (Sheephead)is a sought after "game fish" in the southern states...and a "rough fish" in the north. Same fish! AND....the Freshwater Drum is related to the saltwater drum and the Redfish that fisherman spend BIG $$$ catching!
Full of interest facts and history (who knew native Americans used the ear bones from the freshwater drum as currency? And how similar that bone is in the fish...as it is in humans!).
If you like to fish for the "big tug" ....or even for food fish....you should read this book.
Tips on bait fishing, lures and fly fishing!
I don't have this copy but the first edition is amazing. There is no better book on the subject. Not just good information on the species, but also tactics, recipes, and other interesting related information.
