Summary
Tales of a champion surfcaster: the education of a young woman hell-bent on following her dream and learning the mysterious and profound sport, and art, of surfcasting, on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Janet Messineo knew from the get-go that she wanted to become a great fisherman. She knew she was as capable as any man of catching and landing a huge fish. It took years--and many terrifying nights alone on the beach in complete darkness, in search of a huge creature to pull out of the sea--for her to prove to herself and to the male-dominated fishing community that she could make her dream real
Summary
The champion surfcaster and Martha's Vineyard Times columnist traces her efforts to break barriers in a strictly male sport, describing its unspoken ethics while sharing insider strategies on surf-fishing techniques, lures, baits and locations
