New Albin fishing guide pens second outdoor book

Mississippi River Pool 9 fishing guide Capt.  Ted Peck’s latest book “Tails, Trails & Tales with the Old Guide” (pictured at left) is now available through in paperback, on Kindle ebooks and through retail sales outlets. The book is a collection of vintage outdoor columns and magazine articles Peck has written the past 20 years.

Peck said “unprecedented events with an uncertain future” was his primary reason for releasing the book at this time, 10 years after publishing his first book “Mississippi Musings with the Old Guide” in 2010.

“Life in these United States may never return to the normalcy we knew in pre-COVID times,” Peck said. “My intent with this book is to provide folks who love the outdoors with a back trail to reference as our country moves forward.”

The book, subtitled “The outdoor reader for folks with indoor plumbing,” contains about 30 short chapters featuring character studies, hunting and fishing tales and comment on changes in the American outdoors over the past 20 years, with a primary focus being life on the Mississippi River. Peck was named to the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame earlier this year.
