Wide and Deep: Tales and Recollections from a Master Maine Fishing Guide
There is little about the remote town Grand Lake Stream, in eastern Maine, and its surrounding lakes that Randy Spencer doesn’t know like the back of his hand. Spencer, a Master Maine Guide, has learned from the best, and has enough experience as a hunting and fishing guide to fill several lifetimes.
Wide and Deep transports readers to remote backwoods and crystal clear lakes. At its most remote, rural Maine is truly breathtaking in its natural beauty, and Spencer is unrivaled in his ability to capture like no other the experiences of fishing and hunting in some of the most hidden and undisturbed areas in the world.
The relationship between a sport and his guide is an ongoing conversation, one that can last hours, days, and even years. The company you offer is just as valued as the company you keep. Whether they are stories of joy or of pain, there is nothing like listening to Randy Spencer, and Wide and Deep perfectly captures the moments on the water that people wait their entire lives for and spend the rest of their lives remembering.

This upbeat memoir takes a look at two powerful and opposing forces — the need for security versus the desire to explore new territory. After being laid off from her job on a Gulf of Alaska salmon boat, city-bred Carole Gibb ends up on a wild, barely populated island. She isn’t keen on dogs, chainsaws, or the feeling that a bear could come around the corner any second. But this unique setting works a certain magic on her. She gets friendly with a chainsaw, fishes for her meals, and falls for a personable dog. Her funny, wise neighbors help her conquer fears about bears, finding work, and, most distressing of all—the uncertain supply of chocolate. For those with travel lust, or just a curious heart, Fishing for Courage is a ticket to a quirky corner of Alaska, and a story about the exhilaration that comes with letting go of what we know, to learn what we can be.
