Henshall, called both the “Apostle of the Black Bass” and the “Dean of American Anglers,” is one of the most important conservationists and fish culturists in our nation’s history, best known for originating bass fishing. Here, Henshall provides information on all the game fish families of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains, including:

• Sunfish
• Bass
• Perch
• Grayling
• Drum
• Minnow
• Catfish
• Grouper
• Cavalla

This guide, complete with the original black-and-white illustrations and personal anecdotes from Henshall, is a must-have classic for any serious angler.
