The reprint has better paper than the original 1983 version, which was
printed on stock not much better than your average Bible paper.
Unfortunately, the thicker paper makes for a substantially thicker book. A
four inch thick book is, to say the least, bulky; and not incredibly easy
to "curl up with" in the easy chair.
The print quality and especially the photographic quality probably isn't
quite as good as the original; the pictures seem darker than I had
remembered and the print isn't truly "sharp."
And there's a type-o on the left jacket flap.
So I'm being picky; but nothing could keep this from being my absolute
favorite fish book. Worth the $100 price tag.
