Review:

"I was surprised to discover just how comprehensive and well-illustrated this book is. Good field guides don’t come along too often... But this one covers well over 1,000 species and includes everything you’re likely to encounter from the coastal bays out to 200 meter (660 foot) deep waters. Flip through, and you’ll discover species you didn’t imagine existed (the Atlantic Spiney Lumpfish? The Freckled Driftfish?) as well as the ones you know and love... to catch!"

(Lenny Rudow Boater Mouth)

"This book is a wonderful identification guide... It will make an excellent addition to any tying library both for its detailed baitfish illustrations as well as a tool for catch identification and research."

(Stuart Patterson Florida Fly Fishing Magazine)

"A Field Guide to Coastal Fishes is a resource that shouldn't be overlooked for any student of marine life."

(Midwest Book Review)

"This is a substantial improvement on the Peterson Field Guide... Val Kells’s illustrations are vivid and beautiful. The comprehensiveness of this text, along with the amount of detail in both illustration and text, are impressive. For these reasons, along with the very reasonable price, I would recommend this book to my colleagues in the scientific community, as well as to my fishing and diving companions."

(Bulletin of Marine Science)

"This comprehensive field guide to the marine and brackish water fishes of the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts is as well executed as it is accurate."

(Mariner)

"Significant and news worthy... comprehensive and compact... A Field Guide to Coastal Fishes is a must have book for any serious angler."

(Coastal Angler Magazine)

"You would be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive, beautifully illustrated, and well organized book than A Field Guide to Coastal Fishes: From Maine to Texas and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in marine life."

(Mark Watanabe YakAngler.com)

"Quite comprehensive, and the illustrations are marvelous!"

(Aqua-Notes)

"A must for anyone fishing the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the U.S.... it is a great reference for the coffee table, boat or tackle box."

(International Angler)

"A must-have for any person interested in fish from the US Atlantic coastal region. Highly recommended."
