The Greatest Fishing Stories Ever ToldBook - 2000
46 unforgettable fish tales as told by America's finest writers. As editor Lamar Underwood states in his introduction, The Greatest Fishing Stories Ever Told will take you fishing in two kinds of places: those like the ones you have never fished but would like to try, and those like the ones you have fished and enjoy remembering. 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 blue-fish 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. With contributions from: John Gierach, Thomas McGuane, Le Anne Schreiber, John Graves, A.J. McClane, Odell Shepard, Zane Grey, Sigurd F. Olson, G. E. M. Skues, Ernest Hemingway, E.
