Acclaim for The Offbeat Angler
"All fisherman are offbeat but Chris and Sebastian make the rest of us look like girl scouts.
Their book is far ranging in its deviance...and often hilarious."
Nick Lyons, Author of Full Creel, Spring Creek and Confessions of a Fly Fishing Addict

"A humorous collection of tales and adventures!  And proof that some guys will do just about anything to wet a line."
 James Prosek, Author of Fly-Fishing the 41st and Trout  

"Poignantly chronicled and expertly written...just what you'd expect from a couple of Yankee toffs."  Steve Kantner (a.k.a. The
Land Captain), Field Editor, Florida Sportsman
