Review quote

"Outside""" Fishing may be a hobby to you, but for Jeremy Wade, host of Animal Planet s "River" "Monsters, " it s a way of life. Wade scours the rivers of the world for the stuff of legend, and we re lucky enough to bear witness. Viewers have seen him catch a lot of big fish . . . but most of the thrill comes from watching the hunt. "Library Journal," 8/1/12 Compelling. "
