First Light on the Water
For one of my dad’s last couple of birthdays, I bought him a fishing book by Al and Ron Lindner. It’s called First Light on the Water.
I borrowed the book the last time I was visiting and I read it before bed for a couple nights and got through it pretty quickly. I’m not one that is much for reading except when it comes to topics I truly enjoy, like fishing. This book is about fishing and more. They refer to experiences throughout their career where they were ‘touched by the hand of God’. They tell how these experiences helped make them the respectable men they are today.
I’ve watched the Lindners on TV for many years and really think they are as good as it gets in the fishing world. I even get a kick out of their north Chicago accents like Bill Swerski’s Superfans from Saturday Night Live.
Even though this book doesn’t highlight their incredible fishing knowledge, it does give you insight to how their careers developed and what it took for them to be successful, including helping many other people along the way. I highly recommend you buy this book and take in what it has to offer.
Good Luck Fish’n
