Testimonials from Fishing Guides:
"I found a copy of your book "The Reel Truth," and I've really enjoyed it. I've fished seriously around Oregon/Washington for 20+ years, but you've still surprised me with a few things. I do appreciate the candor in your book! I've recently become a full time guide and I've already had the chance to use a couple of your gems to catch a few more fish, so thanks for the info, and sharing what you've learned over the many years on the water!"
-John Childs, Oregon fishing guide
"This book is the one, the best I've ever read on fishing how-to! It's a must read for any serious salmon and steelhead fisherman."
-Jerry Shipe, SW Washington fishing guide
Testimonials for 2nd Edition from Facebook:
"I ordered mine, and recieved it in just a couple of days. Steve even signed it. I'm reading it now, and learning a lot of new stuff. You can teach an old dog new tricks !!!!"
"He done good!"
"Ok folks I got the book. Put it on a shelf and walked away at first. It's true. That’s exactly what I did. Well, a few weeks later I picked it back up and found myself engrossed in it. This is a book to be read over and over. And a book to actually be "studied", not overviewed or glanced over. [It has photos, but] It’s a ‘pay attention to the details’ book. BRAVO Steve Hanson! Nicely done. Love chapter 5 my favorite, and chapter 4 is kickin butt after several reads. It’s Educational, and will bring you back to see what else you missed. Makes for several ‘AHH HA, I GOTTA DO THAT ONE. NOW THAT ONE’! Thanks Steve Hanson, great job."
“Got mine and love it….. great book!!”
“My friend Steve Hanson wrote an amazing book full of insight. I expect to slay the fish after reading this! Thank you very much Steve.”
"The Reel Truth second edition book will help fishermen of all skill levels to catch more salmon and steelhead."

This book gets down to the fine details with some really unique tips. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. It is definitely worth getting. Good luck with the sales, I am sure it will be very successful."

-Lynn (moniker is 'Grandpa Lynn')
"I recently received my copy of Steve Hanson's 'The Reel Truth.' After my initial reading of the book, I'm amazed at how much inside information is being passed onto us! Steve goes into great detail on many of the secrets of how, where, and what to use to catch salmon and steelhead. It definitely shares loads of information from many years of fishing the Northwest rivers, and is a book to use as a fishing bible. I believe you owe yourself a treat by checking out this book."
