A celebration of the sport of fishing in the land of 10,000 lakes and beyond, this irresistible book tells the full story from trivia to tradition. Lavishly illustrated with postcards, advertisements, historical prints, and tourist snapshots, this book is an always fascinating, occasionally hilarious, and often oddly informative compendium of fishing lore.
"I thought I knew everything about fishing, but Eric Dregni’s research and his wonderful, quirky book set me straight. This book belongs on every angler’s bookshelf." —Chris Niskanen, former outdoors writer for the St. Paul Pioneer Press and author of The Minnesota Book of Skills
"Let’s Go Fishing! is a quirky assortment of dubious stories and characters, strange lures and odd gastronomical inclinations. As cultural historian, Dregni delivers with a deft hand and light wit, and validates what every Midwesterner with a few rods, a net, and a tackle box knows: Fishing is what we do. Moreover, for better and at times worse, it’s who we are." —Star Tribune
