What is it?
Bob Burroughs' book, Where the Gulls Are.
What does it do?
The author hopes to inspire as well as tell stories about average Joes, or “Joe Sixpack” as he call everyman. “Joe” is any angler who’s not a big-name tournament pro who fishes when he can on a budget. “This book is about ignorance, not expertise,” says Burroughs. “This is about the self-learning moments, and realizing that the trip’s greatest reward is not the full stringer. This is not a ‘how to’ book, it’s a ‘why not’ book.”
Why do I need it?
Because it’s cold outside and you may not be able to fish at the moment.
How do I use it?
Much like you’re doing right now, you read it.
What sets it apart?
It’s written by a fisherman for fishermen. The inspiration for this book came from Burroughs’ own experiences on the water that span decades and the lessons that have translated into everyday life.
