A thoughtful, multigenerational tale of Sunday fishing trips with Dad, as seen through the eyes of the author as a young boy.

This lyrical story recaptures all the Sundays Michael J. Rosen spent fishing with his father at their favorite holes. He listens to his father’s advice on how to bait, cast, and be patient. Years down the road Rosen watches his father pass on the same lessons to his grandson.

A story of wonder and discovery for young anglers, a gift of nostalgia and love for grown-up experts, Fishing with Dad is a story for everyone whose memories include unhurried time at the water’s edge, tossing a hook and a bit of hope into the current.
