A group of delightful short stories about two Florida fisherman who build their own boat and take on all types for the season, -- real fishermen, rank amateurs, a tiger hunting Englishman, women who love fishing and women who pretend, and so on. Deep sea fishing off the Florida coast has many enthusiasts, and these stories should be right down their lane. The stories are slow getting under way, but once you get Crunch and Des out on the water, in their own ""habitat"", you share their experiences, humorous, exciting and commonplace. The author knows these waters and these people. Most of the stories have appeared in the S E P.
