Fishing out a new book
Published 7:01 am Sunday, August 30, 2015
Fishing trips aren’t only for men, and RayAnne Dahl is ready to tell women all about it.
A new novel, “Fishing with RayAnne,” by Ava Finch, also known as Sarah Stonich, tells the story of 34-year-old RayAnne Dahl, a self-confessed late bloomer who lands inadvertently in the host’s seat of the first all-woman fishing talk show on public television. After the original host bails from the show, RayAnne, originally hired as a fishing consultant, has to overcome her camera-shy personality. She finds interesting guests and discovers a world of fishing outside the men-dominated world.
After she settles in, her world upturns and with her family out of reach, she has to decide whether to follow the rules or follow her heart.
