You’ll Need a Guide: Fishing Stories That Aren’t Much About the Fish is a humorous account, rich with reflection on the human condition, of guided fishing trips from the McCloud River of Northern California to the Middle Bight of Andros Island. Casual readers will enjoy the wry commentary. Fly fishermen will have a belly laugh of recognition when they recognize themselves in the essays.

About the Author
Marshall Craig is a Yale University graduate and Wharton MBA who frittered much of his life away making a living and raising a family when he could have been fishing. You’ll Need a Guide is the product of a writing itch he first felt as an undergraduate on the staff of the Yale Record, the college humor magazine. The fishing stories he tells blend humor and insight with well-crafted descriptions of the places where he fishes and people he fishes with and meets along the way. They are drawn from a lifetime of wetting a line in places as different as the Blau River in Germany and the Los Roques “pancake flats” off Venezuela. Craig’s literary lodestar is Red Smith, whose iconoclastic and warm style appeared in newspaper columns for over fifty years. He and his wife, Diana, live in St. Petersburg, Florida.
