Description
Join Joe Fitzgerald on a quest to discover all the sportfish of Nova Scotia. From the beloved Brook Trout to the behemoth Bluefin Tuna, meet an incredible array of species, get helpful tips, and discover the true reason for angling. From native brook trout and Atlantic salmon to introduced species like smallmouth bass and chain pickerel, Nova Scotia’s waters teem with fish. Smelt, shad and striped bass rush upriver from the sea each year. Eels, catfish and sturgeon prowl lake bottoms and brown and rainbow trout cruise estuaries. In the surrounding ocean, huge schools of mackerel, pollock, and squid patrol the coastline, flounder and cod negotiate the seafloor, while bluefin tuna and sharks lurk offshore. Herbert Hoover said, “Next to prayer, fishing is the most personal relationship of man.” Nova Scotia offers countless opportunities to establish that relationship. An incredible array of species, venues and fishing methods that foster the quest for escape, adventure and quiet contemplation that angling provides. The perfect place for Chasing Pisces.
About the author
Joe Fitzgerald was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and spent his childhood exploring the province's forests, lakes and rivers, and marine environment. His early fascination with the natural world instilled a life-long passion for wildlife and angling. Joe graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science from Saint Mary's University, where he played varsity football as a wide receiver. After earning a Teaching Degree from the University of Maine at Fort Kent, Joe embarked on a pilgrimage to the tip of South Africa, where he encountered a creature that embodies the mystery of the oceans, the great white shark. Joe then accepted a teaching contract in Saudi Arabia, and was immersed in the tapestry of tribal, religious, and political intrigues of the Middle East. After 9/11 and its worldwide fallout, Joe decided to pursue his dream of writing for a living. Returning to Canada, Joe began a freelance writing career, while tending bar at one of Halifax's popular watering holes. He has written magazine articles on a wide spectrum of topics, and authored a column in the Sunday newspaper about sport fishing in Nova Scotia. Today Joe uses these experiences to spark his imagination and fortify the stories he creates. Speculative short fiction and thriller novels are his passion.
