Matt Rigney has fished New England fresh and saltwater for nearly 40 years, 25 of those off the coast of Kennebunkport, Maine. He has fished offshore from Rhode Island and Maine, in Long Island Sound and in the waters off Bermuda, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, and on Georges Bank 100 miles south of Nova Scotia. He is a member of the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) and Oceana, the largest ocean restoration group in the world, with over 300,000 members in more than 240 countries.
He has been published in the Brownstone Review, The Boston Globe, and Orion Online and Huffington Post, where he blogs about fishing and the great fish. In Pursuit of Giants is his first work of non-fiction. His current project is a novel set in South Carolina and the Rocky Mountains.
