The author of four popular non-fiction books, Bob takes on the role of a raconteur in his first novel Looking Through Water, which debuted internationally last month.

The narrative centers on William McKay who finds himself reliving his past to help his troubled grandson, Kyle, deal with the present. The old man wants desperately to discover what is troubling the brooding boy and hopes against hope that sharing his own tortuous journey to self-discovery will lift Kyle from his dark place. William's story starts on an Adirondacks lake and wends its way through Manhattan to the Florida Keys. Interesting characters from the old man's past come to life to help him tell an unforgettable story full of surprises and suspense.

"It's a love story and an adventure story; filled with conflict, emotion and healing. It's a great coming of age tale. And it has guns, shooting, dying and of course, since it's the Florida Keys, fishing too! It has all the elements for a good story," Rich said.

"I had great fun inventing colorful characters, plot twists against backdrops I've always loved; fishing, Manhattan, the Adirondacks and the Florida Keys."

Looking Through Water is now also available on,, and at

His four other books include three on fishing: The Right Angle; The Fishing Club: Brothers and Sisters of the Angle; Fish Fights: A Hall of Fame Quest; and a motivational book (co-authored with Scott Friedman) Secrets From the Delphi Café: Unlocking the Code to Happiness.

Always the philanthropist, Bob Rich said proceeds will benefit the Project Healing Waters, dedicated to helping injured veterans and active duty military heal from physical and emotional wounds through fishing. Along with helping many other non-profit charities Bob has raised millions for the Redbone and a cure for cystic fibrosis from his annual BassEye fishing tournaments in Buffalo, N.Y. and Golden Isles Red*Trout events on St. Simons Island, Ga.
