  1. Pavlov's Trout: the incompleat psychology of everyday fishing, by Paul Quinnett, is a very fun book. It covers the gamut of psychological ideas with a very light touch, and connects it all to the sport of fishing. It didn't seem as profound(though it was just as entertaining) as it did when I read it 22 years ago while caring for my mother as she battled leukemia, but possibly that is because the inoculation of these ideas is now fully engrained. But it probably holds little appeal for non-fisherfolk as evidenced by my non-fishing sweetheart growing bored with it after 40 pages or so because she didn't get all the fishing allusions. But if you enjoy fishing and thoughtful discussion about how we live our lives then I'm sure you will enjoy this book. Paul Quinnett , at the time of the book'swriting, had already spent 25 years as a mental health professional, counseling in the fields of substance abuse and suicide prevention, and the man knows whereof he speaks.
