"Celebrity Fish Talk" amuses and amazes while feeding the public’s insatiable appetite for peeking into the private lives of stars from Hollywood, TV, music and sports.
It reveals a lighter, human side of the rich and famous as they share a humorous tale, a poignant moment or a death-defying act on the stage of America’s favorite pastime -- fishing.
With the support of a fraternity brother -- actor and angler Kevin Costner -- author Dave Strege made an exhaustive search to produce a first-of-its-kind book about celebrities and fishing.
Read about... * Why a dog bit country western star Vince Gill. * How Kevin Costner faced his own "Perfect Storm." * How Tonight Show host Jay Leno faked catching fish as a kid to please his father. * Why the legendary Ted Williams would have chosen fishing over baseball had he been able to do everything over again. * What propelled actor Samuel L. Jackson out of the boat and into the air. * What actor Andy Garcia caught with a broomstick. * How Coach Bobby Knight, fishing with Ted Williams, managed to reel in a trophy Atlantic salmon after the reel handle broke off. * Who caught country western star Chris LeDoux fishing naked. * How former golfing great Johnny Miller caught an alligator and took it back to the hotel to show his kids. * Why Deion Sanders experienced a brush with the law while fishing.
Tiger Woods, Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, Charlton Heston, Alice Cooper, Curt Gowdy, Greg Norman, Tracy Byrd, Dan Rather, Clint Black, Clay Walker, Michael Chiklis, Cheryl Ladd, Pat O’Brien, Nancy O’Dell, Matt Lauer, Sugar Ray Leonard, Oscar De La Hoya, Evel Knievel, Nolan Ryan, Cheech Marin, Anthony Edwards, Rush Limbaugh, Wayne Gretzky and Kathy Ireland are among the many others who share stories or talk fishing.
Woven into distinct chapters, the celebrity fishing yarns are introduced with narratives that tickle the funny bone, pump the adrenaline or just plain entertain.
Enjoy the poetic description of fly-fishing and a behind-the-scenes look at Brad Pitt and the making of "A River Runs Through It."
Read about how an angler, strapped into a fishing harness, survived after being pulled overboard by a huge tuna and how a spearfisherman survived a shark attack.
Learn about the crazy carp in the Mississippi and Missouri rivers that are literally jumping into boats like crazy.
Laugh at funny game-warden stories, practical jokes in fishing and the out-takes produced by some of the most well-known fishing stars on TV.
Read about U.S. presidents, passionate fishermen and the one that got away.
In Mother Nature’s neighborhood, celebrities are just like average Joe Angler. They enjoy fishing, and they have a fish story.
As former tennis great Michael Chang said, "Anyone who loves fishing always has some kind of fish stories."
We think you’ll enjoy them.

A cow fell from the sky and sank a fishing boat. This hard-to-believe-but-true story is included among the numerous fishing narratives in the book that introduce the tales from the rich and famous.
"Celebrity Fish Talk" is not just a book about celebrities. It tells about a shark attack, about an angler who fought a marlin for 33 hours before losing it, about how an angler survived being pulled overboard by a 350-pound tuna, and about funny game warden stories, fishing presidents and practical jokes in fishing.
"Celebrity Fish Talk" was written in a way that makes it an enjoyable read even for non-fishermen. Hope you enjoy it!
