If men were fish and women the anglers, trout would be the good guys women want to land, Other Fish in the Sea the fellows who make women’s lives miserable. How do you differentiate between the keepers and the losers? A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout illuminates the often-murky waters of the dating pool with insights inspired by fly-fishing techniques and advice.
A Girl’s Pocket Guide to Trouser Trout helps a woman define her own angling style in the hunt for her trophy trout. This witty, sometimes spicy book dishes information on Other Fish in the Sea to avoid, quality streams to fish (good places to meet good men), leader lines to cast (conversation openers), and natural, artificial, and exotic lures to utilize. What to do when the fishing hole runs dry, prospects for angling in the later years, trouser trout tips, and tall tales of trout landed or lost round out the book.
