About The Book

The Fishing Life is an entertaining anthology of fishing anecdotes and well-researched articles from across Paul Schullery’s research and fishing career. The author offers up stories, essays, farces, daydreams, and ruminations that will engage readers of all kinds.

Of course, being a fisherman and living the fishing life goes beyond just those days spent with rod and reel in hand. It is something that occupies your mind and your heart, not just your hands. As such, this collection is not only about intense fishing moments, but also “a book about those long stretches of thinking, hoping, daydreaming, and otherwise getting ready that occupy fishermen between those moments.” It is truly a way of life.

Whether you’re looking for informal advice or deep reflections related to the sport and art of fishing, The Fishing Life is sure to catch your fancy—and give you plenty to dream about, when you can’t be on the water.
