Fishing was Matt Reinemo’s top priority. Then, in quick succession, he fell in love with a non-fishing woman, got married, and became a father. Now along with his tackle box, he juggles a diaper bag. In Compass of My Soul, Reinemo searches for striped bass and peace of mind on the flats of his beloved Nantucket Island, suffers through luxury during a fishless weekend at a bed and breakfast, chases marlin offshore, and fights a losing battle to control the size and scope of a birthday party at home. Through remembrances of his own upbringing in things piscatorial, fishing adventures in Florida, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and Costa Rica, and having observed countless fathers fish with sons in his years as a guide, Reinemo considers what it means to be a good fishing father, and somewhere along the way, a great dad.

Here is what some of the biggest names in angling have to say about Compass of My Soul:

"It would be a travesty if Compass of My Soul were considered a fishing book! Its pages are filled to brimming with OUR lives, seen through Matt Reinemo's eyes, then compared to his own, and finally, penned in a style that keeps you turning page after page. I judge a well written book by how many times I find myself wishing 'I could have said that'..... I quit counting! Keep 'em coming Matt."
- Flip Pallot, Television Icon, Author, Legendary Angler

"Superb!! A joyous romp through the tides of life and passions every fisherperson on earth will connect with in the first chapter. From there it only gets better as reality, love, family and age shape the course of Reinemo’s life. A rare insight into the psyche that makes a soul endure a winter on a sand bar 30 miles off the New England coast with constant 30-60 knot winds and sub zero temperatures - and think they have won the geographical lottery.
Every angler, parent, fisherman and fisherwoman will relish the connection of fish, and the aquatic outdoors. Reinemo rekindled this old man’s thirst for the ocean of life that surrounds us all."
