  • The Biggest Fish Ever Caught: A Long String of (Mostly) True Stories by Andrew Vietze, tells the tales behind the International Game Fishing Association’s record-holding fish. The stories are more than about the catch though, with the author exploring the ethics of the sport including catch and release, stocking and bioengineering, and conservation issues. Publisher: Lyons Press (October 15, 2013).
  • Flyfishing Northern New England’s Seasons by Lou Zambello explores the regions of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and western Massachusetts, and their historic brook trout and landlocked salmon fisheries. Zambello’s common sense advice is coupled with tales from the storied waters of the areas, including the Kennebec, Penobscot, Grand Lake Stream, Rapid, Presumpscot, Androscoggin, and Deerfield Rivers, and Rangeley, Moosehead and Sebago Lakes, including many more familiar names. Wilderness Adventures Press [Kindle Edition], (November 21, 2013).
