It begins with the early pioneers of the sport: Henry William Herbert and "Tuna" George Farnsworth, and proceeds to colorful portraits of some of the grand old men of the sea, such as Charles Frederick Holder, Zane Grey, Ernest Hemingway, and Philip Wylie.
This new edition also features expanded saltwater flyfishing information in the chapter on Lefty Kreh. And it includes a new chapter on Walter Fondren's founding of the Coastal Conservation Association, the most influential and powerful sportfishing organization/lobby in the United States.
We may never again see the equal of the great fish caught by the anglers in this book. Gone are the great schools of giant bluefin tuna, and the huge broadbill swordfish. But the stories live on in the pages and photographs of this classic book.
