It has been nearly ten years since I wrote the first editon of Darkhouse Spearfishing Across North America. The 1,000 copies of the first edition, printed in 1992, were sold out by late 1996. They were sold to spearing enthusiasts, book stores, libraries, bait shops, friends, and others as far away as Alaska, New England, and California. Thank you ! However, there is still a strong demand for this little book, so with encouragement of the Minnesota Darkhouse & Angling Association I decided to reprint it.
(From the Preface to the Second Printing, by Jay A. Leitch, Author).
This is the only book we have been able to find that is dedicated exclusively to all aspects of ice fishing from a darkhouse. It is well worth the cost and the time it takes to read (and reread and reread and reread) it. A wonderful refrence book for all who love this sport.
