Why did I bother to read Bryan Mellage's book? Fishing isn't one of my favorite past times. The book is listed under the Sports genre. I hate sports! It's not an appealing title, except, look at that title. Never Eat Stink Bait: Lessons Learned from the Creek Bank. How can you not be drawn to something like that? At least, wonder about it. My love for the bizarre and good humor drew me to this book like a catfish getting a good whiff of a well cured batch of stink bait. I didn't really know what ...more

The title got me!

Every once in a while a book title perks my interest and this one was no exception. What is stink bait? I took the bait. I got hooked. The read was as good as could be. The combination of basic human values with fishing and hunting savvy creates a smooth flowing narrative worth thinking about. Memories of long ago surfaced and were re-enjoyed.

There are a lot of different ways to view fishing: finding food, spending time with friends, trying to reel in the big one, and the less popular wasting time. You can learn some things if you observe what goes on, and Bryan Mellage shares some humorous observations from his life of fishing in Never Eat Stink Bait.

The observations cover a wide range of subjects from marriage to friendship to actually not eating stink bait, which is a very important one and should not be learned the hard way. He

Somewhat interesting stories. I love fishing, and reading about it, but I just could not get into this book. Not much else to say about this one.
