Orvis Marketing Director, Tom Rosenbauer, and acclaimed outdoor photographer, Andy Anderson, have teamed up to produce SALT: Coastal and Flats Fishing, a book described by the publisher as ‘the closest a reader can get to firsthand experience without getting wet’.
The book is a visual journey through some of America’s most memorable saltwater fishing destinations, with Anderson’s stunning photography complemented by Rosenbauer’s essays on species including striped bass, tuna, bonefish, permit and tarpon.
Featuring photography from the Atlantic Northeast, Pacific Northwest, Bahamas, Gulf Coast and Florida Keys, the book is an album of shared experiences for the serious fly fisherman and a valuable guidebook to those less travelled.
The Forward is by Guy de la Valdène, the author of several books, along with articles for Field & Stream and Gray’s Sporting Journal and director of the acclaimed documentary, Tarpon. Valdene writes: “Most photographers think too much about technique and not enough about seeing. I suspect that Anderson’s vision was born in the field, fishing and hunting, where looking is at a premium.
“Anderson’s art is still but not silent. It speaks to everyone whose eyes are open to the forthright command and beauty of the sea. His photographic voice is joined by the words of Tom Rosenbauer, a kindred spirit in language to these masterful pictures.”
Outdoor essayist, Tom McGuane, says of the book: “If you want to understand the passion for fishing on the edge of the ocean, or if you already have that passion but want to know why you feel it so intensely, then SALT is the book for you.
