Editor's note: BRILLIANT! A record about fishin'. Trout, tuna, red snapper...how can you go wrong!?!? And wrong it isn't to like these quirky songs. Country songs with slight variations and innovations plus Mary Jane Alm's sex-ay lisp adds just that much more spice to this fillet of slow.

Dale Menton is a legend here in the Twin Cities (Minnesota). At least to some of us of a certain age. He was lead singer & guitarist with the Gestures ("Run, Run, Run") in the 60s. Then came the Blackwood Apology with the musical "House of Leather." This is a new on me. Fishing? (The "Mary Jane Alm Band" was pretty big here in the 70s as well.)
