Fishing continues to be one of the top outdoor pastimes, and so is collecting the rods, reels, lures, decoys, accessories, and artwork that connect today's anglers with anglers of past generations.
Complementing Sorenson's easy-to-read text are Howard Lambert's intricate photographic stills, which raise the presentation of such items to an art form. Period ads, illustrations, and period brochures and literature complete this look at this popular hobby. Foreword by Ron Schara.

“. . . . a colorful trip through angling tradition. All history books should be so entertaining and attractive.” --The Journal News, December 15, 2000
