When the marriage founders, Fred's world is assaultaed by his motkher's need to realize herself as an artist andd by his father's need for revenge. In order to keep his head above water while family and fortune go down around him, Fred fishes. The allure of the ocean becomes contagious as mesmerizing images unfold...a memoir that balances life's adversities with the wonder and awe of nature.
