5 Star Review of “The Greatest Fish Story Never Told”

I was a little hesitant about reading this, as I am normally not big on poetry or fishing. But The Greatest Fish Story Never Told is a clever little chapbook of 40-ish poems that sucked me in from the fist one, “Gearing Up.” I found myself flying through this book, even with having to reread several of the poems to really get an understanding of where Sedlacek was coming from. She does a great job in incorporating humor, especially in poems like “Fish Don’t Buy Italian Ice.” Somehow this book really got me in a way that made me long for the days of casting the line. Maybe I’ll have to get out the old fishing pole and give it a try myself!”
