Al Griggs writes: “It comes close to being required reading for Ten Milers. I have read excerpts from the book and found them to be extremely interesting and informative, not just about fish and fishing (I would describe Bruce as being the Ten Mile Fishing Guru; he seems to be able to catch walleyes when no one else can!  He also writes articles for “In
Fisherman” upon occasion.) but including ichthyology, limnology, lake biology and ecology, and you name it. It is packed full of information which is presented with historical and ecological perspectives.  It is further enhanced with numerous illustrations which were done by his cousin, Bruce Granquist, a resident of the island of Bali.”

This book became available on May 1, 2007. Copies may (might still) also be found at Swansons in Hackensack, and there may be other places in Hackensack or possibly Walker which carry it.
