Book Review: Gary Borger’s “Reading Waters”

December 15, 2011 By: Marshall Cutchin

New on MidCurrent: Gary Borger’s latest book, Reading Waters—the second in a 20-part series and illustrated by his son Jason Borger—is reviewed by John Melfi. “This is a technical treatise, but don’t let this scare you off—it is totally approachable and reader-friendly, so long as you’re what any teacher might call an ‘active reader.’”

“The first chapter, fittingly, is an overview on reading waters; general stuff, but quite good. Next is an excellent chapter that discusses spots where fish tend to hold (‘lies’) and, perhaps more crucially, why fish hold there.”
