The quintessential book on roughfishing, Fishing for Buffalo by Rob Buffler and Tom Dickson is back in print. Hallowed as the bible of roughfisherman everywhere, the original printing was becoming increasingly difficult to find, even at secondhand bookstores, amazon, and ebay. Lucky for us, the resurgency of brownlining has garnered a second printing of this fine masterpiece.
Rough fish may be a lot of things—ugly, unruly, or elusive—but they are definitely not boring.
The folks over at the University of Minnesota Press were so kind to send a review copy to the Roughfisher Command Post, and let me tell you, it feels great to hold a mint condition copy of this book. Complete with species identification, biological information,tactics, and even some of the authors' favorite recipes, this book is a must have for any serious roughfish enthusiast.
While your at it, take a look at Dickson's other opus, The Great Minnesota Fish Book, illustrated by Joseph R. Tomelleri. Both of these fine works share a spot on my bookshelf.
