2015 Book Festival Author
Dale Laurin, Sr.

Dale Laurin worked as a financial planner for 37 years. He was was a part-time educator at Fox Valley Tech for 10 years. Most importantly, though, he has been charter fishing on Lake Michigan for more than 40 years. Fishing Secrets: the Life and Times of a Present Day Charter Fishing Captain is his second book, published by AuthorHouse.

Fishing Secrets tells the story of a boy who discovers a passion for fishing at a young age. The book is not just about fishing, though, but also about how our lives are interwoven and influenced by all the activities in which we are involved.

In addition to fishing and writing, Laurin enjoys outdoor activities such as snowshoeing, skiing, and hunting. He and his wife and family have lived in the Fox Valley area for many years.
