About the Author
Eric L. Sorenson, an award winning sports editor and outdoors writer based in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, began fishing thirty years ago as a child, exploring the pristine lakes of northern Minnesota and the Twin Cities with his grandfather. Eric, who earned his bachelor of arts degree from the University of Minnesota's School of Journalism and Mass Communications, has contributed his freelance articles to outdoors magazines such as the In-Fisherman, the Walleye In-Sider, Mid West Outdoors, and Outdoor News. Eric has also published The Angler's Guide to Freshwater Fish of North America. When not writing, he is most commonly found on a trout stream; he also fishes for trophy muskies, walleyes, panfish, steelhead, and salmon.
