2014 National Outdoor Book Award Winner "How best to describe this book? Dazzling. Simply dazzling. Andy Anderson, the photographer of Salt, is a consummate artist. His dramatic photography combined with an equally dazzling design has created a book that is utterly exhilarating in its depiction of the sport of coastal fishing. Anderson comes at the subject from all angles, from close-up to afar, from eye-level to point-of-view, and from under water to its misty surface. His palettes range from brilliant color to sepia tones to stark black and white. It is a masterful merging of design and photography, a true work of art. The final touch to this outstanding volume are a series of engaging essays by noted fishing author Tom Rosenbauer." —National Outdoor Book Awards Foundation"Photographer Andy Anderson brings a strong vision of coastal angling to Salt, a riveting large-format album of museum-quality images. Anderson's work reaches deep into the mesmerizing experience of fishing at the edge of the sea with a take on angling dominated by the broad sweep of marine horizons, the otherworldly beauty of ocean-honed fish species, and the meditative concentration of saltwater anglers. His anglers are dwarfed by their task, diminutive against the indifference of coastal geology, absurdly hopeful in their casts, gnomic guides at their sides pointing the way. The vigorous poignancy of saltwater angling comes through on every page." -Gray's Sporting Journal“This is one of those books that
