The T.D.Stash Crime Adventure series
Set in Key West. T.D.Stash is a professional fishing guide and an unlicensed detective. Rod got the idea for the series after he and Lynn built a houseboat in the Keys and saw the local denizens up close and personal. The research on these stories somehow always involved going fishing, which may be why Rod came up with the idea in the first place! Alas, all three books are now out of print and very hard to find.
