Longtime sportfishing journalist Charlie Levine has published an e-book called “Sucked Dry: The Struggle is Reel.”
It’s available free from the Amazon Kindle store through Sunday.
The main character is Parker McPhee, and he encounters a cast of characters during his adventures. After his dying father tells the youngster that he wants him to see the world and live life on his own terms, Parker embarks on an expedition from the tropics to the Gulf of Alaska to the trout streams of Montana.
The book has McPhee fly-fishing for 100-pound tarpon, trolling for blue and black marlin, casting to roosterfish and reeling in striped bass and bluefish, among other adventures.
Although he embarks on many trips, McPhee also connects the dots of his relationship with his father, with whom he enjoyed fishing.
