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.
