This authoritative, amusing and thoroughly engaging guide to fishing for trout marries the expertise of veteran trout fisherman and champion tournament caster Gord "The Old Guy" Deval with the wit and brilliance of his star pupil, author Paul Quarrington. The result is a compendium of invaluable tips on the art and intricacies of angling from the master, laced with pungent editorial comments from his upstart apprentice.
