"A well-written guide to sandwich joints in Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey, with almost as much information about nearby fishing holes." --Philadelphia Magazine "This book, written by a Temple University administrator and two retired colleagues, has a little bit of everything: commentary on the authors' favorite fishing spots, evaluations of tackle shops, advice on nearby attractions where nonfishing family and friends can pass the time, and restaurant recommendations in case you don't get any keepers." --New York Times
