The fishing in Virginia is as diverse as the terrain.

Based on a lifetime of fishing, Martin Freed describes 100 top sites and what anglers can expect from Virginia's waters.Freelance writers and photographers Martin Freed and Ruta Vaskys are well known in the region and highly respected in the fields of angling and Virginia wildlife. Their credits include Fish, Fur, and Game; The Mid-Atlantic Fisherman; The Chesapeake Angler; and the Eastern Shore News.
