    "I've avidly read Larsen's magazine articles in numerous publications, and he stands head and shoulders over other bass writers.  There is a wealth of information in his books for bass fisherman, tournament angler and nature student alike.  The hows and whys of bass fishing have received a great deal of attention from publishers during the last couple of decades, but few offer as much in the way of serious but digestible information as Larsen's creations." -- Bradenton Herald

Numerous figures and photos make the books easy to read and understand." -- Ft. Myers News Press

    "Larry Larsen's books will increase your largemouth bass catch.  His popular books are chock full of interesting and valuable information. They are packed with secret tactics and advanced strategies.  His tips in just one chapter of each book are worth the price of the entire book." -- Ft. Pierce Tribune

    "Larsen is one of the country's top bass fishermen and the advice in his books should be followed, particularly by those dedicated lunker largemouth anglers who had rather wrestle with monster bass than horse in smaller bass.  Since a feature on bass fishing expert Larry Larsen appeared last Sunday, several fishermen have phoned for information on where they can purchase his books on bass fishing." -- Orlando Sentinel

"I am ordering one book to give a friend for his birthday and your two new ones.  I have all of the Bass Series Library except one.  I have followed your writings for years and consider them the best of the best!" - J. V. Cataula, GA

 "Thanks for sending me a copy of your very nice peacock bass book.  It looks great.  I am ordering 4 additional copies of the peacock book for my graduate students and Venezuelan collaborator.  I have two students stationed at Lake Guri and two stationed at the Rio Cinaruco doing research on the fish." -- K. W. Texas A&M Univ. Dept. of Fisheries, College Station, TX

 "Your book, "Peacock Bass Explosions", got me excited about fishing again.  It's tremendous! I'm catching lots of peacocks between 4 and 5 pounds in South Florida.  And to think, I quit fishing for 5 years until I read your book.  It is getting a lot of people out fishing again.  We thank you!" -- R. R. Hialeah, FL

 "On a peacock trip to South America in January, one of our thoughtful members had a copy of your book.  Since only two of us had ever fished for peacocks before, we pored over your book for advice on fishing strategies.  It was kind of comical, learning to fish by book WHILE FISHING.  We were all successful that week, catching peacock up to 19.5 pounds, and I caught 5 bigger than 14 pounds.  The peacock is a fantastic fish!  As a life long Alaskan, I think they even exceed salmon for their aggressive striking." -- C. J. S. Girdwood, AK

 "I thought I had exhausted every avenue of information and had come up empty-handed on peacock fishing, until I stumbled upon your book at the library.  Unlike other books of this nature, I was delighted to find that yours provided the detail I was looking for.  You will enable my obsessive fisherman friend and I to actually plan on such a trip and feel assured that we have an understanding, not only of the fish we're pursuing, but of the geography, logistics, necessary equipment and techniques to make it successful." -- S. O'B. Minneapolis, MN

  "It is a small world.  A friend who I had taken fishing on the Cinaruco last month had a copy of your book, Peacock Bass Explosions.  The chapters on Brazil brought back memories of my trips there.  You are the only person I know who knew the technique of using big spoons for peacocks.  We used to take a 12 foot boat and small Archimedes motor, a 120 pound test line and a foot-long spoon with a large single hook.  When the boat was on a plane, the hook stayed straight up and would run without snagging.  Those d___ peacocks would hit that spoon in full flight and almost take the guy on the other end of the line over the stern.  I agree with your comments that peacocks are the top freshwater fish pound for pound.  I really enjoyed your book and have enclosed a check for two more for a couple of buddies." -- C. S. Beaufort, SC

 "We wanted to give you special thanks for the excellent resource book used for reference in our two "Good Fishing" TV show segments on the peacock bass." -- R. E., Babe Winkleman Productions, Nisswa, MN

 "Thanks for sending me the Peacock Bass Explosions book, but I gave it away to a friend.  So my check is enclosed for another for me and a second one for another buddy.  I have two other friends that will be ordering a copy, one a biologist with Texas Parks & Wildlife." -- W. C. Austin, TX

 "I've just arrived for a one month vacation in the States and bought your "Peacock Bass Explosions".  As a Brazilian angler, I am familiar with tucunare and have fished for it all over Brazil.  After seeing those monsters you caught in South America, I had to write you in a hurry.  Until today, my biggest tucunare weighed only 8 pounds, and I need to catch one over 15 pounds badly.  Your book is very instructive and should help me catch that big one.  It'll have a permanent place in my library.  I hope someday our paths will cross in the Amazon!" -- P. D. S. Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL

     "Just finished reading your great "Peacock Bass & Other Fierce Exotics"!! I just want you to know that your writings and knowledge are an inspiration to sportsmen who hope to 'pass the torch' to their children." -- E. J. Hendersonville, NC
