George Hommell Jr. shares a remarkable memoir surrounding his life and adventures as a Florida Keys fishing guide, and trailblazer in the world of flats fishing.
A pioneer in a bygone era, Hommell helped perfect the techniques and ethics of flats fishing and raising awareness of conservation needs, as well as rules and regulations, through both guiding and World Wide Sportsman, the business he cofounded. A fishing guide extraordinaire, he was sought by numerous celebrities including Jack Nicklaus, Ted Williams, and the man that would become his lifelong friend and fishing partner, President George H. W. Bush.
These lighthearted stories capture the heart and soul of an honest man with an adventurous spirit and a deep respect for the environment in which he worked. Whether facing sunny skies or sudden heavy storms, he learned how to map the best times and places to find fish in the vast Everglades and Florida Bay, giving his clients the best experience and the opportunity to catch loads of fish.
For fans of Lefty Kreh, Stu Apte, and Flip Pallot, these honest and often humorous true tales will inspire you to get out on a boat and cast a line.
