SOWBELLY the obsessive quest for the world record bass I just got done reading this book excellent. If any of you have been considering reading this I would strongly recommend it. Im not much of a bass fisherman I like big ugly fish with either teeth or whiskers, but still found it very entertaining to learn about the level of devotion & commitment some of these guys put into chasing the world record bass. My wife tells me I am an obsessed fisherman after reading about these fellas, my fishing merely seems like a casual hobby. I think this book should be required reading for any wives/girlfriends, they would think at least my guy isnt that crazy. Also, most of the fishing books I read while entertaining - arent usually written very well, I can usually get 3-4 weeks out of a book. This one I finished in 3 days.
