"George Reiger captures the allure and the plight of the striper, giving fresh insight to striper fishing past and present."
—Lou Tabory, author of Inshore Fly Fishing
"A pleasantly avuncular history and reminiscence of striped- bass fishing."
"George Reiger is a first-rate storyteller and his inimitable writing style, coupled with frequent treks to rockfish haunts, makes The Striped Bass Chronicles a thoroughly enjoyable fireside reader, especially for anyone who fishes the surf, and more so if they go armed with only a willowy fly rod."
—Nick Karas, New York Newsday
