I very much enjoyed that this book was written from a young boy's point-of-view. It shows how perceptive and smart children are; especially when it comes to reading people. You can also tell how passionate he feels about "fishin'." It is well-written, and full of good tips for boys who would like to fish more often. Also, it's beautifully illustrated. I highly recommend this book to anyone (ages 5 to 85) who would like to know a bit more about the subject of fishin'
Let me tell you something. I've lived by this book since I was 7. I grew up in a concrete jungle where there were no lakes or streams. So we had to use goldfish from the pet store and a bucket, and after reading Frankie's book, I realized something:
I DONT WANT TO EVER GROW UP!!!
He has taught me the ways of the river, and now.....12 National Bass Championships later and a an 8th place finish in the National Musky tournament this year, I have decided to hang up my rod from my days of fishing and just read this book to all of the local youngsters and spend my time teaching others to fish.
on a side note.....every day I tear one page out of the book and stick it in a coke bottle and set it to sea....in hopes that one kid one day far far away will pick it up and begin fishing.... or at least GO OUT AND BUY THIS BOOK!!!! (To read the rest of it of course, seeing since they only have one page)
Frankie Paull is a master fisherman, and deserves lifelong success and prosperity.
Last I heard he had his hand bitten off by a baby great white while fishing in Cape Cod.
Hope all is well Frankie if you're out there reading this.....
All in all, as a MASTER FISHERMAN with the credits to back it, I want everyone and their mother to BUY THIS BOOK....and look at Frankie back then (fish wasn't on much of the diet as a kid)
