"Bass fishing has evolved into what may be the quintessential American angling form. It's a pretty good story line: aggressive, scrappy, widely distributed fish . . . a ravenous predator, susceptible to a wide range of lures and fishing methods . . . pursued by people of all means, fishing as simply or as elaborately as their interests and wallets desire. No wonder bass are king in the collective hearts of North American fishermen."--Ken Schultz
