Nine American angling writers, plus a feast of the best of angling art. "In essays commissioned especially for this book: Ernest Schwiebert reflects on the challenges of early-season trout fishing, from the fabled streams of the East to the swift, roaring rivers of the West. John Graves offers a tale of a near-tragedy during a sand bass run on the Brazos River. Robert F. Jones recalls the heart-thumping aftermath of hooking his first muskie. Vance Bourjaily describes his attempts to create his very own angler's paradise, a farm pond that he started from scratch. Ted Williams pays tribute to the majesty of the Atlantic salmon, as well as to the efforts being made to keep the mighty species alive on this planet. Bill Barich takes the reader to his favorite steelhead river, the Russian in California, and introduces one of the most colorful fishing characters who ever cast a line. Geoffrey Norman reminisces about his earliest and fondest fishing memories, golden afternoons when he learned important lessons from his father. Charles F. Waterman guides the freshwater angler to offshore locales, where light tackle and strong, streaking fish make for unforgettable competition. Christopher Lehmann-Haupt ruminates about getting through the off-season, those months when a fisherman's heart and mind create action that all too rarely takes place on real streams and lakes. ...Finally [this book] offers one of the richest collections of fishing art ever assembled, including many rare and never-before-published painting and drawings."
