"This is a book on Big Game Fishing by a well-known Australian surgeon. His vivid descriptions of the catches (and losses) by himself and his friends make the reader feel as if he himself were taking part in these epic battles in Australian and New Zealand waters. Shark, tunny, sword-fish, big seas and little ships, they each have their own particular thrills, and Dr. Watkins communicates his enthusiasm for this fascinating sport. The illustrations are a special feature and, inter alia, there are some remarkable action pictures of fish being played." Big-game fishing off Australia and New Zealand in the 1930s and 40s.
