That's Kirk.  Bring the book up on Amazon and tap on the "Look Inside"  button and you can see a very good preview of the book.  Looks like a real winner.  Nice job Kirk.

i just got my copy of the book and as it says on the cover "the complete book of poppers, sliders and diver for fresh and salt water" it is just that.

There is a wealth of knowledge in the book both about Kirk's own methods and the history of popper making in the South and Gulf Region.  It is well worth the price.  

 

Fair notice.  Kirk is a buddy of mine.  But I stand by the above.  There were a number of times as I was reading the book that I thought "Why didn't I think of that?"
