28 unforgettable fish tales as told by America's finest writers. Will take you fishing to two kinds of places: those like the ones you have never fished but would like to try, & those like the ones you have fished & enjoy. Each selection reinforces the unique personal connection fishing makes between man & nature. Softcover 6x9 inches, 288 pgs.

Each of these stories, selected because of their "intrinsic literary worth," reinforces the unique personal connection fishing makes between man and nature.

These stories will lead you from cold trout rivers to the dark estuaries where bigmouth bass lurk, from sandy beaches where the waves are slashed by bluefish to the great blue waters of the Gulf Stream where marlin and tuna roam. You'll find all kinds of fishing here, and all kinds of fishermen. Edited and with introductions by Lamar Underwood.
