Pictured at left is the cover of my first book, “The Complete Guide To Surfcasting,” published by Burford Books. It took me about a year and a half to put it together. Having never written a book before, I can tell you it’s a long, drawn out labor of love, and after all this time, I’m very pumped to have the first copies in my hand. The book covers everything you need to know, including prime locations to beach fish on every U.S. coast. It will be available online in early April, but I’m not trying to sell you books right now as much as reaching out to any F&S readers in New England for a favor.

This Saturday, I’ll be signing books at the New England Saltwater Fishing Show in Providence, Rhode Island. I all too vividly remember my early days at a local Jersey fishing magazine working the winter show circuit, and let me tell you, you’ll never feel hours as long as those spent sitting at a booth on an expo floor. So if you happen to be attending the show, please stop by and say hello. Nothing passes the time like talking fishing, and I always enjoy meeting readers face to face. We can talk surf fishing, trout fishing, bass fishing…anything you want. Hope to see some of you there.
