Meet Me At The Net, by Ed Novak, features a great collection of fishing stories on the world famous Lake Erie tributary rivers and streams of Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York, known as Steelhead Alley.
The thrills of fishing Steelhead Alley are captured in the author's stories and reflections of fishing the Lake Erie tributaries with close friends for over a decade. The book offers readers a humorous, informative and intimate look at fishing one to three days a week, during the steelhead season (October through April), with very good steelheaders. Fishing with that frequency is bound to generate quality stories. Fishing with expert steelheaders makes for even better stories.
Ed Novak's writing style invites the reader into his personal steelheading experiences. His narratives give the reader a feeling of inclusiveness, placing them into the story and the stream. By the time the reader has finished the book, he or she will not only have an idea of what fishing Steelhead Alley is like, but will feel a connection to the author and his fishing buddies.
If you fish for steelhead, this book will have you waist deep in your own memories and emotions of chasing silver. If you've never fished steelhead, you'll be at the local fly shop buying steelhead gear long before you've finished reading all the chapters.
Meet Me At The Net is available in a softcover and is 323 pages. Copyright 2011.
