It's a human interest story about two mismatched fishing buddies that lasted a lifetime, and then some. Although there are elements of fiction, the story is based on actual experiences, a dedication to the author's very best friend who sadly passed away. It's about a true and lasting friendship of the men and their families, who despite their differences and the periods where they lived far apart from each other, managed to remain very close friends. The story chronicles the escapades of the two men during their often very, very funny, and at times scary fishing adventures. If you like to fish, then you will really enjoy the tales. Be prepared to laugh until you hurt, sigh from time to time, and maybe cry a little bit. It's wholesome family reading, and you'll feel good when you've read the book.
