Publisher Comments:

The bass is the ultimate American fish, flourishing from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from Mexico to Canada and everywhere in between. Bass fishing is bigger than golf and tennis combined, with more than 30 million anglers matching wits with this canny and aggressive prey. For some, it's a beloved pastime; for others it's a consuming passion. For Shaw Grigsby, it's nothing less than a way of life.

He's a legendary figure in the enormous fraternity of bass anglers, a veteran of eight BASS Masters Classics, the sport's most prestigious event. He's won five major tournaments along with dozens of other competitions, and taken home, more than a million dollars in prize money. He's a consummate professional — and once you nibble at his irresistible book, he'll hook you just as surely as the bass he stalks so skillfully.

Bass Master Shaw Grigsby is Shaw Grigsby at his best — and when it comes to bass, nobody's better. Even the most seasoned angler will find tips and strategies galore, on everything from fine-tuning a lure to thinking like a fish, and his soft-spoken infectious enthusiasm will catch the imagination of newcomers everywhere. You'll learn where to find the fish in any kind of water and any kind of weather; how to sense the patterns that consistently produce results; what casting technique works best in any given conditions; when to coax a bass and when to challenge him; and even why a handsaw can make the difference between a disappointing day and a world-class weigh-in.

Shaw Grigsby shares his extraordinary fishing expertise with a modesty and generosity that's all too rare in today's hyper, high-pressure world, but he does something more. In telling his own story and those of other anglers he's known in his long career, he works a very special kind of magic that combines the spirit of a true sportsman with a deep respect for nature. And as he teaches you just about everything there is to know about the art of bass fishing, he'll teach you more than a little about life itself.

Only, a handful of anglers are lucky enough to enjoy a day on the water with Shaw Grigsby, but in its wonderful mix of lessons and lore, excitement and sheer exhilaration, Bass Master Shaw Grigsby really is the next best thing to being there.
