WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
"Is this book about fishing? Definitely, but you're not going to find much 'how-to' that will help catch more fish. What you will find, as you read, is the natural connection that anglers have to something bigger."
Dave Mull, Editor Great Lake's Angler Magazine
"The well-told stories in Angling Life are not only exciting and enjoyable, they will guide you to some life-changing insights that are uniquely fitting for all who love to fish. Captain Dan Keating expertly connects his wide range of fishing experiences to the rest of life. You'll be both a better angler and a better person as a result of this book."

"I am not an avid fisherman, but this book could draw me to consider the hobby. Dan Keating mixes stories of big waves and fish with the biggest story of all, God's love shown in the life of Jesus Christ. Fishermen were drawn to Jesus. In this book, you'll see why."
