Wide and Deep Tales and Recollections from a Master Maine Fishing Guide By Randy Spencer
A collection of stories from one of Maine’s master fishing guides.

There is little about the remote town Grand Lake Stream, in eastern Maine, and its surrounding lakes that Randy Spencer doesn’t know like the back of his hand. Spencer, a Master Maine Guide, has learned from the best, and has enough experience as a hunting and fishing guide to fill several lifetimes.

Wide and Deep transports readers to remote backwoods and crystal clear lakes. At its most remote, rural Maine is truly breathtaking in its natural beauty, and Spencer is unrivaled in his ability to capture like no other the experiences of fishing and hunting in some of the most hidden and undisturbed areas in the world.

The relationship between a sport and his guide is an ongoing conversation, one that can last hours, days, and even years. The company you offer is just as valued as the company you keep. Whether they are stories of joy or of pain, there is nothing like listening to Randy Spencer, and Wide and Deep perfectly captures the moments on the water that people wait their entire lives for and spend the rest of their lives remembering.

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for fishermen. Our books for anglers include titles that focus on fly fishing, bait fishing, fly-casting, spin casting, deep sea fishing, and surf fishing. Our books offer both practical advice on tackle, techniques, knots, and more, as well as lyrical prose on fishing for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, baitfish, catfish, and more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to publishing books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked by other publishers and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

"Reading Wide and Deep quickens the pulse of anyone who loves dawn on the water, a filling campfire lunch, or sunset on a far shore. The great strength of Wide and Deep lies in its power to endure. Like fishing season itself, the power of Spencer’s stories is that they can come around again and again. Read ten or twenty years hence, they will reveal the same truths as they do today."
New Hampshire/Vermont Outdoor Gazette

"As he did in his debut book, Spencer spins yarns with the well-practiced skill of a natural storyteller ... Wide and Deep, while plenty lengthy, still feels too short. That’s a credit to Spencer, whose prose flows — like those cool waters — at an enjoyable, refreshing pace."
