The Last Guide’s Guide
(to family, fishing, money and everything else that matters)

by Ron Corbett

Why you should fish. Twelve things you’d be crazy not to have in your home. How to raise good kids and spot bad ones

These are some of the lessons contained in The Last Guide’s Guide, the sequel to Canadian bestseller The Last Guide.

The Toronto Star called The Last Guide – which told the story of Frank Kuaick, the last full-time fishing guide in Algonquin Park – “a homage to a vanishing way of life.” Acclaimed author Roy MacGregor said The Last Guide would “feed the soul forever.”

Now Frank is back with a guidebook to everything he has learned in seventy years of fishing. Written over four years, The Last Guide’s Guide is a rollicking return to Algonquin Park with Leacock-like tales of politics, heat waves, bass fishing, the Ambassador of Rock Lake and Frank’s eightieth birthday party at Arowhon Pines Resort.

The Last Guide’s Guide is the guidebook the world has been waiting for. A how-to manual to fishing, making money, cooking a shore lunch, falling in love and “everything else that matters. Not the stupid stuff.”
