I had no idea that the Florida Panhandle had so much to offer. This author definitely knows the territory - I felt like I got all kinds of inside tips on where to go and what to do --- plus I couldn't find any other source of information specifically dedicated to the Panhandle

In The Barefoot Fisherman Guide To The Emerald Coast, Gregory Dew reveals forty very special spots to fish along the Gulf Shores, Alabama, to Apalachicola, Florida. Also included for the angler is a wealth of sound advice on rigging an outfit, basic angling techniques, special fishing techniques, picking a prime location (considering tides, currents, wind, water, and geography), fish species and habitats, even local recipes! The Barefoot Fisherman Guide To The Emerald Coast is enhanced further with a chapter dedicated to resource websites, addresses, telephone numbers, tackle shops, and selected fishing charters. If you are planning a fishing trip anywhere along this spectacular Gulf of Mexico shoreline, begin with browsing through Gregory Dew's The Barefoot Fisherman Guide To The Emerald Coast!

For travelers looking to avoid the crowd, this guide will help them discover the unique "must-see" attractions of Alabama. Go beyond the usual tourist attractions to discover such hidden treasures as DeSoto State Park, The Cedars Plantation, or Landmark Park. Whatever you do when you get to Alabama, get off the interstate-and take this book with you!
A True Classic:

The maps in this book are worth the purchase price alone.

The book was origionally published in the mid 1970s, so some of the information about put in and take out points is out of date. The rivers and streams themselves have changed very little, so the detailed maps in the book will give you a blow-by-blow description of what to expect on you adventure.

While there is a lot of information about the Cahaba River, none of the other Alabama rivers and streams are neglected...the Cahaba River is just a great river to canoe, and it rightfully claims an appropriate amount of space in the book.

I purchased this book before I ever baught a canoe, and it has helped me to enjoy trips down the Cahaba Rive, the Sipsey Fork, the Little Fork, and the Mulberry Fork to name a few.

If you own a canoe and live in Alabama (or are just interested in the subject), BUY THIS BOOK.

Curt Burdick, a veteran paddler, grew up in Michigan and today lives with his wife and their two sons right up the road in Daphne, Alabama. He is a programmer in the software industry.

Included are waterways known for wonderful Gulf scenery, marine and wetlands wildlife, and a range of technical challenges.

Inside you'll find: an overview of equipment, clothing, and how to transport your boat; detailed maps showing access points and routes; information on each waterway's character, difficulty, and the best times to paddle; lists of local paddling organizations and information resources.
