‘Of Wind of Tides’ released as an e-book

TAVERNIER, FLA. – Legendary Keys Fishing Guide, holder of more than 40 Saltwater Fly-Rod and light tackle World Records and Author of Stu Apte’s memoir, Of Wind and Tides, is now available as an e-book.

Of Wind and Tides was first released as a print book, a hardcover and paperback,  in December 2008, but is now available as a Kindle edition at Amazon.com. Apte’s autobiography is also for sale as a Nook Book at Barnes and Noble.com, and also at Five Valleys Press.

Stu’s autobiography takes the reader around the world and back, from the coasts of Costa Rica and Panama for Pacific sailfish, to the rivers of Iceland and Russia for Atlantic salmon, Stu has fished every continent except Antarctica—but always returning to his favorite Florida Keys’ flats for tarpon.

Aside from being an ex-Naval Aviator and retired Pan American 747 Captain, Stu’s angling expertise has translated into filming many TV Segments for ABC’s “American Sportsman”—fishing side-by-side with Chicago Bears’ linebacker, Dick Butkus, Boston Red Sox left-fielder and former Islamorada resident, Ted Williams (with whom Stu shared a 40-year fishing friendship), Boston Celtics’ all-time point-leader, John Havlicek, and of course the voice of ABC’s American Sportsman, Curt Gowdy.  And if you think it would be exciting to read about when Stu took President Harry Truman out to the Content Keys on his 15-foot skiff to reel in some bonefish, or when he caught General “Stormin” Norman Schwarzkopf his first tarpon ever, wait until you read about the time Ernest Hemingway showed Stu how to prepare a Mojito on his boat the Pilar on the docks of Havana Yacht Club!
