To get in the right frame of mind for today’s interview, I set aside my usual German bologna and Muenster cheese sandwich and went with tuna fish. Because after all the Mayonnaise my wife mixes in with a can of tuna, it isn’t much about the fish, either.
My guest today is Marshall Craig, a Yale man and Wharton MBA who says he frittered away most of his life making a living and raising a family when he could have been fishing.
And while I know he loves his wife and family, I think he’s genuinely pretty serious about his lost time away from casting a line.
MARSHALL CRAIG podcast excerpt: "We don't just catch the whopper fish. We have friends we got out with, with whom we share the interaction, pushing the boat off, lunch or what we discuss (on the water) -- occasionally what we catch. But fishing is about more than just that finny thing you get at the end of your hook!"
If you’re a man or woman who likes to get away from civilization to fish in remote and exotic places, Marshall is the kind of guy you’ll want to do it with. I reached that conclusion based on the humorous essays found in his new memoir, You’ll Need A Guide: Fishing Stories That Aren’t Much About the Fish.
In the interests of full disclosure, I want to share with you that my wife, Mimi, edited Marshall’s book and we liked it so much that we published under the Mr. Media Books imprint. It is available in paperback or ebook on Amazon or wherever you buy books about fishing.
