“The newest artist-bookmaker, and surely one of the most original and unique, is Steven Daiber. . . a treasure for serious collectors.”
–Nick Lyons, Lyons Publishing, New York, NY

Daiber’s tough but delicate artwork enhances the account with haunting images so vivid you can almost smell the wood smoke . . . a slim, virile, handsome book no serious collector of angling literature should be without.”
–Robert F. Jones

Wood cut prints from the book are also for sale.
