"Not many writers can write short and well. Even fewer can write short and well and move the reader. Al Liere does all three and, with the fewest possible keystrokes, touches the heart." --Paul Quinnett, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and the author of Pavlov's Trout
"The tapestry of Alan Liere's writing isn't just the main thread of fishing. Nor is it the tight weave of family, conservation, or place. It's not even Liere's knife-edged humor. It's all those things flowing together like a river through his stories of life. This is writing at its best." --Scott Stouder, Western field director for Trout Unlimited
"Alan Liere collects close encounters of the piscatorial kind and sets them down with a wry sense of humor and a sympathy for fishermen that arises from 50 years of sharing their special kind of madness. His work is proof that the funniest things in life are generally the truest." --Chris Madson, editor, Wyoming Wildlife
