"Like a well-stocked tackle box, The Great Minnesota Fish Book is a tribute to the diverse fish life that roams the state’s lakes, rivers, and streams. If you’ve ever wondered what’s on the end of the line or swimming under the dock, rock, or country creek bank, Tom Dickson has written about the finned creatures—ranging from famous to infamous to unheard of—to tell you. Complete with illustrations by Joseph R. Tomelleri, the best fish artist above water, this book is a real keeper." —Ron Schara
"A beautiful and informative introduction to the great diversity of fishes in Minnesota, besides the ones that taste good sautéed in butter. This book reminds us that diversity in nature is not always ‘useful’—that is, unless you regard beauty as something of utmost importance and worth preserving, as I do. The resplendent gems of Minnesota's waterways are here on full display." —James Prosek
"Put a fishing rod in Tom Dickson’s hands and you never know just what he might catch. His enthusiasm for fish and fishing have taken him to the far corners of Minnesota to fish for everything from walleyes to mooneyes. Few anglers can claim a similar pedigree. A thorough researcher, Dickson can delve into a dry fisheries science document and extract nuggets of fun and useful information. Few writers are better suited to write about Minnesota’s wondrous array of fish species." —Shawn Perich, author of Fishing Lake Superior
