    Easy to read and good intro into the hobby I wish the pictures were in color and had better definition especially the identification ones in the back I also wish the author was specific on areas to hunt the general gist is jump into water and look for black gravel Which I guess is helpful but honestly it s a huge state and there s gotta be better pockets than others.
