What a job Matt Patterson did with the
illustrations. He knows his fish and he knows
his art. The illustrations are absolutely splendid:
accurately rendered and artistically striking.
Moreover, the book’s designer created a
handsome blend of art and text, and in places,
even creates the appearance of fish migrating
through the book. If you’re a serious fisher in the
Northeast, or if serious anglers come to visit, this
is a book you’ll want lying on the coffee table.
